Want to do your part for the environment in honor of Earth Day? This month, the Buzzards Bay Coalition is seeking volunteers to lend a hand and help clean up two properties on the Acushnet River that will open to the public later this year.
On Earth Day, Sunday, Apr. 22, help clean up the Coalition’s P.J. Keating Woods property from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Gloves, tools, water and snacks will be provided at this cleanup, which is hosted in partnership with Operation Clean Sweep. Meet at the Acushnet Council on Aging (59½ South Main St., Acushnet).
On Arbor Day, Friday, Apr. 27 from 2:00-5:00 p.m., help manage invasive plants at the Acushnet River’s Hamlin Street crossing. Volunteers will remove species like mugwort and multiflora rose, which choke out native plants at this property along the river. Parking is available at neighboring White’s Factory (approximately 120 Hamlin St., Acushnet).
Please pre-register to volunteer at these cleanups to ensure there are enough supplies. To pre-register or with questions about either cleanup, contact Logan Johnson at johnson@ savebuzzardsbay.org or 508-999-6363 x217.
