Sat., April 28 – Neponset River Cleanup: Quincy, Milton & Dorchester – 9am-noon

Calling all volunteers! Let’s get ready for spring!

Join NepRWA and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) on Sat., April 28, from 9am-noon, for Park Serve Day, a statewide volunteer service day to get our parks and open spaces ready for the summer recreation season.

This year we’ll be cleaning up sites in Dorchester, Milton, and Quincy.¬† The exact sites are still to be determined, and we should have more specifics on the sites in March, once the snow begins to melt.

Please fill out the registration form below and we’ll keep you updated as our plans take shape.


Registration is necessary for planning purposes. Indicate whether you would prefer to work in Dorchester, Milton or Quincy, or wherever you’re needed most.

If you can’t join us on the day of the cleanup, please consider making a small donation instead. Every little bit helps us restore the Neponset River’s natural beauty so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

    I am teacher and Student Council Adviser at Pierce Middle School in Milton. We are hoping to volunteer on April 28, preferably in the Milton/Lower Mills/Mattapan area. The Student Council runs a community initiative every month, and this is a terrific cause (my sister Terry Dolan has been involved for many years!).
    Please let us know what we need to do next. We will be putting up a sign up sheet in early April for a better head count, but I predict
    10 -20 students and 4-10 adults. How many can you handle if we have a large response?

    Thank you!

    • Hi Joe,
      This is so great to hear! We’d love to have anyone who is interested come volunteer – there’s no limit to the help we could benefit from. I will definitely keep in mind your preferred area while seeking out sites for the cleanup. The next steps for you would be to keep trying to garner interest in the event. In the meantime, I’ll keep you posted on any developments in the planning process. If you have any site suggestions, feel free to send them my way.
