From the Wellesley Natural Resources Commission:
Please join the Natural Resources Commission in celebrating Earth Day on Saturday, April 21st, by helping to clean-up along the Charles River from
10 AM -12:00, rain or shine. Please come for any length of time that you’re available. We’ll meet at the municipal parking lot at the intersection of River Street and Rt. 16 near the Newton border.
All volunteers will receive a FREE Earth Day T-Shirt and refreshments will be served and clean-up supplies will be provided including non-latex work gloves and trash bags. Please wear sturdy shoes and long pants and help us reduce waste by bringing your own water in a reusable container!
After the clean-up, the Charles River Watershed Association, who is co-sponsoring this clean-up with the NRC, will have three volunteer appreciation picnics following the Clean-up, one on the Esplanade in Boston, one behind the Shaw’s supermarket in Waltham and another at Whole Foods in Bellingham; all picnics will run from 12-2 pm. All volunteers are welcome to join us for a picnic; the free Earth Day t-shirt you will be given acts as your ticket to the free lunch provided (directions will be available at the clean-up site).
