Celebrate Earth Day at Saugus Watershed Council

Volunteers are invited to celebrate Earth Day and the state’s 10th Annual Park Serve Day by joining the Saugus River Watershed Council and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation for a cleanup project at Marshview Park along the Saugus River in Lynn and Saugus on Saturday, April 30th, from 9:00 AM to noon.  Volunteers will remove trash from the park, clean up the surrounding marsh and rail areas along the Saugus River, and help out with general landscaping in the park.  Gloves, bags, tools, coffee, donuts, and water will be provided.  Bring gardening tools and rubber boots if you have them.

“Marshview Park acts as an important gateway between Lynn and Saugus and provides beautiful views of the Saugus River,” said Joan LeBlanc Executive Director of the Saugus River Watershed Council.  “The state’s Park Serve Day is a great way to celebrate Earth Day by partnering with the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation to make a difference at the local level.  Students looking for community service hours are encouraged to help out,” said LeBlanc.

All are welcome – no RSVP needed.  Directions:  Marshview Park is located adjacent to the Saugus River on Boston Street in Lynn, directly across the street from O’Briens on Boston Street in Lynn and across the river from Spud’s Restaurant on Lincoln Avenue in Saugus.

The Saugus River Watershed Council is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization founded in 1991 to protect and restore the natural resources of the Saugus River watershed.
