2022 Fall Neponset River Cleanup

Every year hundreds of Neponset River Watershed Association volunteers gather to clean up the Watershed...this year, you could be one of those volunteers!

On Sat September 17th (9am - 12pm) we will be hosting a cleanup at locations throughout the Neponset River Watershed. Choose one site from the list below and follow the prompts to complete your registration. Two weeks before the cleanup, you will receive more info about your cleanup location and details for the day of the event.

Please review and open the Volunteer Waiver below.

If you are registering as part of a group (school, business colleges, friends) please have each member of the group register individually. Note that parents/guardians are the exception to this rule. A parent/guardian can sign a single waiver for themselves and the minors that will be accompanying them.

Minors must have a parent/guardian sign the Parental Guardian form in order to participate without the parent/guardian present.
