Since 2000, the Charles River Watershed Association has coordinated the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup each April with a collaborative of other non-profit organizations. The Cleanup involves volunteers picking up trash at over 100 different cleanup sites along the Charles River and its tributaries. In a partnership led by Charles River Watershed Association, volunteers from 35 towns within the Charles River watershed work together to do their part in making the Earth a cleaner and better place to live.
On Saturday April 21st, 2012, the Wind River Environmental team joined 4,000 volunteers and community leaders to clean the banks of the 80-mile Charles River at the 13th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup. Wind River was stationed in Bellingham, MA at the Mellen Bridge. In a collaboration led by Charles River Watershed Association, volunteers worked together to remove litter and beautify the Charles River and its surrounding parklands in one of the nation’s largest one-day river cleanup events! Volunteers removed an estimated 15-20 tons of trash from sites throughout the watershed from Milford to Boston.
