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!”
The group was one of dozens participating in the Charles River Cleanup on Saturday. The Charles River Watershed Association had 3,500 volunteers for its annual Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup on Saturday, the group announced. They cleaned sites along the river, from Holliston to the Esplanade in Boston.
Volunteers refueled on oranges provided by Stop & Shop.
