Join a group of fellow Duke alumni as we work with other volunteers at the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup, sponsored by the Charles River Watershed Association. Each year, over 3,000 volunteers attend the event to pick up litter, remove invasive species, and assist with park maintenance all along the Charles River and its connected waterways. This is part of a national effort as part of American Rivers's National River Cleanup. The initiative has removed over 25 million pounds of trash from America's waterways to date!

Our group has been assigned to Boston's beloved Esplanade between the BU Bridge and the Museum of Science. We will spend three hours in the morning helping to maintain the park and keep the waterways clean.

The Esplanade is easily accessible by Lyft/Uber or by T (Charles / MGH stop on the Red Line). There is limited street parking around Boston Common, about a 10 minute walk from the Esplanade. Our exact location will be confirmed by email approximately two weeks before the event. We hope to see you there!
