Thinking about organizing a river clean-up?

Here are some things to consider: You’ll need gloves, trash bags, a dumpster or way to dispose of the garbage collected, and lots of volunteers.

Volunteers wanted in West Medford for ongoing monthly clean up of Lower Mystic Lake area. Join a dedicated group of neighbors who take turns cleaning up. Contact Barbara to get involved.

Friends of the Mystic River, a Medford-based community organization focused on the enjoyment, protection and enhancement of the Mystic River in Medford, often organizes river cleanups.
