Thanks to the 50! Volunteers Who Contributed to the 11/13 Magazine Beach Cleanup!

14 Nov

About fifty volunteers assisted at the Magazine Beach Cleanup on Sunday. Volunteers picked up trash, raked leaves, cut back brush, dug up trees and bushes growing into the Powder House and terrace foundations, and planted bulbs. The area has been transformed. The Cleanup was organized by the Charles River Conservancy, Riverside Boat Club and the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association.  Among those that participated were members of the Boston Rotaract Club and Harvard LASPAU.

Thank you to Danielle Stehlik, Christina  Antiporda, Renata von Tscharner and Lei, all from the CRC, for providing tools and leadership; to Ed Ballo and Kate Sullivan of the Riverside Boat Club for hosting the event; to Steve Sears of DCR for coordinating the trash and yard waste pick up; and to the many members of the Cambridgeport community who turned out to improve Magazine Beach.  We gathered about 30 bags of trash and 65 bags of yard waste and the park looks so much better! Check it out!
