In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, AMC has closed all lodging and food service operations until July 1. Dates for all in person activities and programs posted below remain subject to change based on the latest public health guidance and government directives. Cancelled programs are not displayed. We encourage you to join AMC's online socials, educational programs, and trainings.

Trip dates: Saturday, July 29, 2017 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

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.
