About the Event

Help clean up the Saugus

River Watershed while

practicing social distancing

Our Earth Day clean-up has been modified to a

self clean-up competition! There will be 5 categories for the

opportunity to win local gift cards! The competition will begin on

April 16th and end on April 30th.

Most of you know that trash that exists in our environment

eventually makes its way into our waterways. So, while practicing

appropriate social distancing, we are hoping you'll take some time to

pick up trash while getting out and enjoying this spring weather. We

want to make this a community activity - using social media to clean

up alone, together! You can help us with this by:

• Pick up trash in your neighborhood (we recommend wearing

gloves, and we also recommend you only clean by yourself or

with those in your household - so that we can follow CDC

guidelines and stop the spread of COVID-19.) There will be

dumpsters, bags and gloves around the Watershed for use and

disposal, we will keep an updated list on our website and social

media.

• Take photos of your cleanup

• Post your photo on social media with

the hashtag #SRWCleanUp -and tag

us @saugusriverwatershed so we

can share as well!

• OR if you don't use social media, email

your photo to staff@saugusriver.org,

and let us know if we have permission

to share!

• Our spring cleanups are canceled,

but that won't stop us from

cleaning up our watershed together, apart! If you clean up

your neighborhood or local waterway (while practicing safety

and social distancing!), post a pic on Facebook, Instagram or

Twitter with the hashtag #SRWCleanUp and tag us

@saugusriverwatershed Don't have social media? Email the

photos to staff@saugusriver.org and let us know if we have

permission to post!

• Prize categories: 1. Strangest object found and removed 2.

Largest object found and removed 3. The most bags (50 gallon)

filled 4. The youngest person to fill a bag (50 gallon) 5. Most

bags filled by some between the ages of 8 - 14.

The Saugus River Watershed encompasses these 11 communities

Everett, Lynn, Lynnfield, Malden, Melrose, Peabody, Reading,

Revere, Saugus, Stoneham, and Wakefield.
