River clean-ups are a fun and rewarding experience! MyRWA typically hosts or partners with other organizations to participate in spring-time river clean-ups. If you would like to host a river clean-up please contact us and we’ll be sure to help spread the word!
Earth Day River Cleanup
On April 29th more than 100 volunteers helped cleanup Torbert Macdonald Park in Medford as part of MyRWA's annual Earth Day River Cleanup. In warm, sunny conditions volunteers picked up litter from the waterfront park and removed Oriental bittersweet, an invasive vine. The event was part of the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation's annual Park Serve Day. Thanks to all who lent a hand!
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.
