The Shorelines Need Your Help! Join the Neponset River Cleanup on April 28.

It's time to help cleanup and beautify our storm weary coastline.

The winter of 2018 has wreaked havoc on many communities, as evidenced by the numerous images on television and social media.  On a local level, while planning for our Annual Spring Cleanup, we’ve discovered areas along the Quincy RiverWalk and Neponset estuary that are in desperate need of TLC.  The photos below were taken on March 7, 2018 in Quincy, and show recent damage from Winter Storm Riley.

Can you help with the cleanup? Bring a friend or two. Organize a group of co-workers. Come and make new friends! Whatever time you can give is much appreciated!

    These photos show little debris compared to the
    Neponset River inlet to the right of the highway ramp at Granite Ave. and behind homes on Courtland Circle, Milton numbered 51 to 69. there are coolers, buckets and all kinds of assorted debris. I’ve never seen it this bad in 35 years. I think more barrels in Pope John Paul Park could help in the future.

    • Hi Eileen,
      I know where you mean! We’re hoping to send volunteers to the Riverside Ave area of the Milton Marshes, and if time permits we should be able to start making some headway behind Courtland Circle too.
