Neponset River Earth Day Cleanup

April 20 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Celebrate Earth Day by joining with NepRWA staff and other volunteers to clean up waterways and parks across the Neponset Watershed.

  • We provide everything you need for the cleanup: trash bags, trash tongs, rakes, shovels, gloves, waders, hand sanitizer, and bug spray.
  • We recommend that you bring hats, sunscreen, water, snacks — and any favorite work gloves (We will also have gloves on-site for you.)
  • Long pants and closed-toed shoes are recommended for terrain and poison ivy.

Sign up with friends, family, scout groups, green teams, and co-workers! Adult supervision recommended for young people under 15.
