Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup

The Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup builds on a national effort as part of American Rivers’ National River Cleanup®, which to date, has removed over 25 million pounds of trash from America’s waterways. From 2016 to 2019, the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup was recognized by American Rivers for the Most Pounds of Trash Collected and Most Volunteers Mobilized.​

Our cleanup brings together over 3,000 volunteers each year to pick up litter, remove invasive species and assist with park maintenance along all 80 miles of the Charles River. Residents are drawn to the popular Charles River Cleanup from a desire to give back to their community while enjoying the beauty and wildlife along the river. Volunteers hold onto the connections they establish during this day of stewardship by returning to the Charles to exercise, play and enjoy nature throughout the year.

Registration is now open to participate! Visit the website today to learn more and sign up with the CWRA.

Indigenous Earth Day at MIT

Living Climate Futures presents testimonials and discussion of climate change and related issues among Native American leaders with Project Indigenous MIT.

Living Climate Futures demonstrates a collaborative approach that does not merely ask after the “social impacts” of climate change and mitigation strategies on diverse communities, but instead is led by research agendas that center community needs, experiences, and priorities.

Fossil Fuel Freedom Tour

This Earth Day join Extinction Rebellion Boston as we kick off our No New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure Campaign with our Fossil Fuel Freedom Tour.

We must act now! The latest IPCC report states that climate change is happening so rapidly that it could overwhelm the ability to adapt. In Massachusetts and New England our government, influenced by the methane gas and manufacturer industries, is continuing to build new fossil fuel infrastructure in climate justice communities and move too slowly on transitioning to renewable energy.

We will start at Copley Square and then we will blaze our own Freedom Trail through Boston. We will name names as we bring our message to the doorsteps of the financial, legal, and corporate offices of the companies enabling and profiting off of the climate and ecological apocalypse that they are creating. They are climate criminals and need to be labeled exactly that!

At each stop of our Fossil Fuel Freedom Tour we will convict the criminals of their crimes and perform DISCOBEDIENCE to celebrate. Get ready to dance!

We will start gathering at 3:30 at the Copley Square green across the street from the entrance of the Boston Library. We will start our march at around 4PM, ending sometime around 5:00-5:30.
