Agenda

Friday September 25, 2020
Start: 09/25/2020 9:00 am

It's our 34th Annual River Cleanup. We will not be able to all be together, but it doesn't mean we can't clean up our rivers and watershed. Make a plan to spend a couple of hours on the weekend of Friday - Sunday, September 25 - 27 to make a difference!

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord Rivers have seen unprecedented numbers of visitors and locals seeking stress relief, recreation and opportunities for responsible gathering. This makes it even more important for us to care for our rivers and watersheds, and that is just what OARS Team Up Clean Up will do!
