NSRWA’s 25th Annual Clean Up

Sponsored by Whole Foods, Covanta and Billington Sea Kayak

Saturday April 28th 10 am – 12 pm

Help us to keep our rivers clean. Bring your family – this is a great event for all ages. Work up an appetite cleaning our rivers and streams and then join us for a barbeque on the Driftway in Scituate at noon.

We have set up various clean up stations to start from. Captains will be at many stations to dispense trash bags, etc. HOWEVER WE RECOMMEND YOU CONTACT OUR OFFICE FOR FURTHER INSTRUCTION BEFORE HEADING OUT! Call 781-659-8168.

Volunteers may work by foot, auto or boat. All trash should be brought back to clean up stations by noon.

12 pm: FREE Celebratory Cookout at the Driftway Conservation Area in Scituate. Sponsored by Whole Foods.

NOTE: We will be selling raffle tickets for the Pamlico 100 kayak and paddle generously donated by Billington Sea Kayak- The kayak will be on display at the barbeque. Proceeds help fund the NSRWA’s education and advocacy programs.
