The Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup—With A Virtual Twist!
The Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup builds on a national effort as part of American Rivers’ National River Cleanup®, which to date, has removed over 25 million pounds of trash from America’s waterways.
From 2016 to 2019, the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup was recognized by American Rivers for the Most Pounds of Trash Collected and Most Volunteers Mobilized.
Our cleanup brings together over 3,000 volunteers each year to pick up litter, remove invasive species and assist with park maintenance along all 80 miles of the Charles River. Residents are drawn to the popular Charles River Cleanup from a desire to give back to their community while enjoying the beauty and wildlife along the river.
Volunteers hold onto the connections they establish during this day of stewardship by returning to the Charles to exercise, play and enjoy nature throughout the year.
Create Your Own Team for 2021
Choose your own time and day and meet with your group at the river or, to protect trash from going into the river, in your neighborhood.
CRWA will send out a registration packet about a week before the Cleanup, which will include a COVID-19 protocol, and a week worth of themed cleanup activities that volunteers can use to set goals or compete with their friends. Sign up on the CRWA website. Invite friends or make it a family outing! And please share your pictures with @MHH365!
Thanks for lending your helping hands!
