Mystic River Spring Cleanup
Join with your family, friends, and neighbors and help us give the Mystic River and the surrounding area a thorough spring cleaning!
Friends of the Mystic River's 25th annual Mystic River Spring Cleanup event. The meeting place will be at the Hormel Stadium parking lot (90 Locust Street) adjacent to Mystic Riverbend Park.
Volunteers are invited to meet at Hormel to sign in and pick up bags, gloves and instructions. Work will focus on the Mystic Riverbend Park and adjacent greenspace, but participants are welcome to travel to any other location along the Mystic in Medford that they may wish to clean up. At the end of the event, organizers will collect all bags of trash that have been filled and return them to the Hormel site for pickup by the city.
Morning and lunchtime refreshments will be provided at the check-in site.
In the event of heavy rain on April 4, the cleanup will be held on Sunday, April 5, at the same location and times.
Friends of the Mystic River (www.fomr.org) is an all-volunteer, Medford-based community organization focused on the enjoyment, protection and enhancement of the Mystic River in Medford.
