UXBRIDGE, Mass. - In celebration of Earth Day, the Blackstone River Watershed Association is sponsoring its annual river shoreline cleanup on Sunday, April 22 from 1 to 3 p.m. The cleanup will take place in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Park Serve Day being held throughout the state.
BRWA Team Leaders will work with volunteers at River Bend Farm and Old River Road in Uxbridge, at the Blackstone Gorge and along the Blackstone Canal in Blackstone, and at additional sites within the Blackstone River Watershed. Check the website over the next few weeks for details on these other locations.
Be a part of an ongoing partnership to remove trash along local riverbanks that will make for a cleaner, healthier and more beautiful resource. Make a difference by volunteering just a couple of hours. This project also meets community service requirements for many organizations.
After the cleanup, volunteers will meet at River Bend Farm Visitor Center in Uxbridge, at 3 p.m. for pizza and drinks, provided by the Blackstone River Watershed Association.
