A group from the Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice made the Charles River a nicer place by removing all sorts of items from the waterway during the Charles River Cleanup on Saturday, April 28.

The group removed garbage, debris and much more from the shore of the Charles River in Watertown near the Stop & Shop on Pleasant Street.

“We had a great turnout,” said Sue Ellen Hershman-Tcherepin, president of Watertown Citizens.

She added, “It is both one of the most depressing and one of the most exhilarating activities that brings our community together!”

  1. I was sorry to miss this communal work-fest this year. Thanks to everyone who helped make walking (or biking, jogging, or canoeing) along the Charles River in Watertown more enjoyable in 2018.

  2. My son and I were assigned the stretch of Greenough Blvd between Watertown Sq and N Beacon St. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean is was overall. Very encouraging!
