OARS Team Up Clean Up

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!

We invite families and small social groups to clean up your neighborhood, or along one of our rivers*. Just indicate your location choice and the time that is most convenient for your small group on our registration form. We need your help to bring your own garbage bags, gloves, and mask to your cleanup location.

Pick up what trash and recycling you can! Please send us photos of your group cleaning up! People love to see what trash is no longer in our rivers.

And be sure to be on the lookout for unique trash that might give you a win in our Best of Trash Contest. Categories will be: Most Useful Find, Most Historical Find, and Most Unusual Find.
