Join the Charles River Conservancy on Saturday, July 17th from 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at North Point Park, Cambridge. Volunteers will use hand tools to help cut back overgrown vegetation. We will also work to remove litter.

Event Location/Meeting Spot:
We will be working in North Point Park, Cambridge. North Point Park is a large area, which will make for easy social distancing! On-street parking is available near and around the park, and the park is within walking distance from the green and orange line trains. We will meet near the white and black Charles River Conservancy truck. Before we begin working, volunteers will be given a lesson on plant identification and proper plant removal techniques.

What to Bring/ Wear:
The Charles River Conservancy will provide tools, work gloves, hand sanitizer, and antibacterial wipes to sterilize all tools pre and prior to use. If you prefer to bring and use your own tools from home, it might be a good idea to bring:
