EPMA: 2019 Charles River Cleanup
April 27, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 12:00 pm
Join EPMA on April 27th for our Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup! Over 3,000 volunteers come each year to pick up litter, remove invasive species, and assist with park maintenance. 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 Charles River. Volunteers build on the connections they establish during this day of stewardship by returning to the Charles to exercise, play, and enjoy nature throughout the year.
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. In 2016 and 2017, the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup was recognized by American Rivers for the Most Volunteers Mobilized.
This year, we will be joining volunteers to remove trash and debris that has accumulated over the winter along and around the coast line at Lederman Park. Join us after at Fielder Field where there will be a free picnic for all volunteers!
This event has been organized by the Emerging Professionals Committee (EPMA). Join us every 3rd Monday of the month for our committee meetings.
