Come tackle the invasive water chestnut with MyRWA!
MyRWA has Community and Corporate Event opportunities for groups of 5 to 85 in June and July. A 4 hour event with 40 volunteers can remove nearly an acre of plants from the Mystic River! MyRWA coordinates the day, while volunteers are hand-pulling water chestnuts from canoes and kayaks and helping out on land as well.
Water chestnut (Trapa natans) in the Mystic River causes a deterioration of value in the river for recreation and habitat.
