Looking for ways to volunteer on Earth Day? Please join fellow alumni at the annual Charles River Earth Day Clean-up on Saturday, April 22nd, 2023. We will be partnering with the Charles River Watershed Association in the cleanup of the parks, forests, and paths along the upper portion of our river in Newton, Weston, Wellesley, Dedham, and more!
In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, we encourage volunteers to bring their own pair of gloves. Trash bags, picker-uppers, and other cleanup materials will be supplied to those who wish to participate. Exact location and further details for meet up will be sent to registrants on or after April 1st.
The Earth Day Charles River Cleanup builds on a national effort as part of American Rivers’ National River Cleanup®, which has removed over 25 million pounds of trash from America’s waterways. Our cleanup brings together over 3,000 volunteers each year to pick up litter, remove invasive species and assist with park maintenance along all 80 miles of the Charles River
Every individual must register with the Charles River Watershed Association after registering with Cornell. A link to complete that registration will be included in your registration confirmation email. Please complete the form before attending the event.
Capacity is limited to 30. Please register by April 14th.
