ExxonMobil Green TeamThe Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) is pleased to announce its partnership with Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria and ExxonMobil Green Team. As part of a summer program to engage Everett’s youth and to beautify the city, MyRWA will provide environmental education to complement their work with the City of Everett DPW and Parks Department. The youth teams will explore the watershed’s history, participate in water quality testing through various methods, discuss environmental justice concerns, and discover the watershed via boat. The Green Team is comprised of two teams of youth, with each team receiving two days of hands-on programming aimed at deepening the participant’s sense of place, understanding of the Mystic River Watershed, and their role as citizens. MyRWA would like to thank ExxonMobil for inviting us to participate and for funding this valuable opportunity and for Everett's City Services staff and Mellon Bank for their hospitality!
