Annual River Cleanup

It was a perfect day for our 33rd Annual River Cleanup!

On Saturday, September 14, volunteers from Westborough to Billerica spread out collecting trash from in along our three rivers. Working in 12 towns, they found truck loads of bottles, tires, bicycles, TVs, rugs, and furniture. Their hard work was followed by pizza celebrations along the rivers, thanks to the generosity of pizza parlors throughout the watersheds.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered. It was a wonderful day for our rivers!

Please join us next September for what has become a regional tradition. Individuals and teams from local businesses, civic association, scout troops, and high schools spend a Saturday morning cleaning up our rivers and their tributaries. A team of people at one site working for three hours can make a real, visible difference for the rivers and their community.

Thank you to our generous 2019 sponsors!
