Join Boston's AMC Young Members to remove invasive water chestnuts while canoeing on the Charles River! This event is free and materials will be provided (but make sure you have your own water bottle and sunscreen, along with boating-appropriate clothing and footwear).
Description from CRWA: Water chestnuts are a harmful, destructive organism which crowds out native species and reduces biodiversity. Volunteers (like you!) can help restore the health of the Charles River watershed. Volunteers will use canoes provided by Boating in Boston, free of charge, and hand-pull water chestnuts from the Charles River. No canoe experience is required. This event involves moderate physical activity for roughly three hours and is open to volunteers age 14 and older. Volunteers should bring clothes that they do not mind getting dirty, a water bottle, sunscreen, and a hat.
