IBM VOLUNTEERS REMOVE 563 BASKETS OF WATER CHESTNUTS

IBM volunteers remove water chestnutsIn a worldwide Centennial Day of Service event, 30 IBM volunteers gathered on the Mystic River in Medford on Wednesday June 15th to remove a section of invasive water chestnuts. IBMers took to the river on a beautiful sunny day with canoes and kayaks as they hand pulled plants to remove a record 563 baskets of water chestnuts. Thanks to all who participated!

*Additional corporate volunteer events are greatly needed. Please contact our office to set a date this summer so we can rid the river of this invasive plant.
