Come be a part of a community river cleanup on the Neponset River in Hyde Park on Saturday, October 3 at 8:30 a.m. Help remove man-made debris from our favorite river, making it more scenic, boat-able, and wildlife-friendly!

We’ll meet at the Martini Shell Park on Truman Parkway in Hyde Park, where we’ll assign each volunteer a work location. Then volunteers will travel to their sites and work together to pull debris out of the river.

Wear clothes you don’t mind getting stained, wet, and/or torn – e.g., shirt, long pants, sturdy shoes, hat, work gloves. Please bring drinking water, sunblock, bug repellent, and a snack.

Place: Martini Shell parking lot, 1015 Truman Parkway, Hyde Park
Time:  Saturday, October 3, 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Rain Date October 4
Ages: 15 and up
Bring: water, snack, hat, bug repellent, sunblock, work gloves.
Wear: work clothes and sturdy footwear (no sandals!) – part of the fun is getting very dirty!
Public Transit: walk from the Readville or Fairmount stops on the Fairmout commuter line

Pre-registration is very helpful, but not required.  Walk-ins are welcome! Use the form on the Neponset River Watershed Association website or email [email protected] or call 781-575-0354 x 301
