About the Cleanup

Join with hundreds of volunteers as we spread out across the Neponset River Watershed to clean up our River, streams, ponds, parks, and trails.

  • We will provide trash bags, trash tongs, rakes, shovels, gloves, hand sanitizer, and bug spray.
  • Please plan to bring 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.
  • You can choose the site you wish to be at when you register.
  • Email NepRWA Environmental Fellow, Meghan Slocombe, at with any questions.
