806 Baskets of Water Chestnuts Removed!

Thanks to the over 70 volunteers who helped remove invasive water chestnuts from the Mystic River in Somerville on Aug. 4th. We removed 806 baskets of water chestnuts thanks to support from the MA Dept. of Conservation and Recreation, Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, City of Somerville, Environmental Resources Management, Boston Volunteers, Harvard Environmental Extension Club, Friends of the Mystic River, Groundwork Somerville, Gentle Giant Rowing Club and Flatbread Pizza.
