Walking along the pedestrian underpass at Route 28 in Somerville.

On Friday, September 30th, the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) and the Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) co-hosted a Walk and Talk for members of the MA Environmental Collaborative, local stakeholders, and members of the legislature. 

The 30 participants learned about MyRWA's vision for a world-class waterfront park and path system along the Mystic River - ones that rivals the transformation of the Charles River and Boston Harbor. The tour highlighted projects that are underway and proposed to revitalize Macdonald Park in Medford and complete the waterfront path network in Somerville, Medford, Malden and Everett. MyRWA was pleased to have five members of the legislature and two representatives from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, a primary collaborator in this effort. 

The tour was led by Executive Director, Patrick Herron and Mystic Greenways Director, Amber Christoffersen.

Thanks to all who attended!
