The City of Boston’s Environment Department and Parks and Recreation Department are organizing a clean-up at the Rivermoor Urban Wild in West Roxbury. The clean-up will take place on:

-Saturday, October 19th
-From 9am-12pm
-201 Rivermoor Street, West Roxbury

A major component of the clean-up will be the picking up and disposing of trash in the surrounding area. Another component will involve the physical removal and disposal of invasive species.

Invasive species are a group of organisms that are not native to a specific area and are harmful to the native organisms. This is due to the competition for resources that they create among the native organisms.

The Parks and Recreation Department will lead the education and removal of invasive species portion of the event. They will help volunteers identify and remove the invasive species that are affecting the Rivermoor Urban Wilds.

If you would like to be a part of this event, please fill out this form. If you need assistance getting to and from Rivermoor, please note that in this form and a representative will contact you to coordinate transportation.

5. Bug Spray
6. Close-toed shoes
