Event description
1st Annual Waltham Charles In-River Cleanup
Have a kayak, canoe, dingy, dory, skiff, scow, yacht, or ship? Then mark the date and get ready to clean up the Charles River in Waltham. Don’t have a water craft? Paddle Boston will be supplying canoes & rowboats to help with the effort.

The Charles River in Waltham is an amazing natural resource, and while there are plenty of community efforts to help clean the paths along the river, there are none for the river itself. This event aims to bring together people who love using the river and want to help to keep it clean.
The plan is to provide volunteers with garbage bags, grabbers, and gloves, then set the fleet free to clean up the river with powerboats picking up the trash from the manual boats. We hope to attract sponsors to help defray costs associated with the event, as well as food sponsors to provide a lunch for volunteers after the event.
Volunteers with their own boats will meet at the Woerd Ave. boat launch and folks who need boats should meet at Paddle Boston's location at the Moody Street Dam, on the Waltham Riverwalk. We'll provide volunteers with garbage bags, nitrile gloves, and grabbers to reach far objects.
