The Cleanup involves over 3000 volunteers helping to beautify the Charles River and tributaries, 
picking up trash and cleaning the riverbanks at over 100 sites from Milford to Boston. The Sierra 
Club provides all of the supplies and instructions that you will need to make the cleanup a success
- trash bags, and gloves for each participant. Your supplies will be available at your site on the morning
of the event. All participants should dress for the weather in clothes that they don’t mind getting dirty.

We will leave the Westgate parking area at 8:30am for Needham, MA, so arrive at 8:20am to join your carpool.

Families of all types are welcome, as are children who love nature!
