Neponset River Fall Cleanup

Saturday, September 25 from 9 am-noon

Join with hundreds of volunteers as we spread out across the Neponset River Watershed to clean up our River, streams, ponds, parks, and trails. You can choose the site you wish to be at in the registration form.

  • We will provide trash bags, trash tongs, rakes, shovels, gloves, hand sanitizer, and bug spray.
  • Please plan to bring masks, hats, sunscreen, water, snacks — and any favorite work gloves (we will also have gloves on-site for you.)
  • Long pants and closed-toed shoes are recommended for terrain and poison ivy.

Pre-registration required. All Covid restrictions will be followed.

Register to Volunteer!

Please email NepRWA Environmental Fellow, Meghan Slocombe, at with any questions.
