Many thanks to the over 40 volunteers who helped dig out phragmites and purple loosestrife at Magazine Beach Saturday. Among them were many members of the Charles River Project at CRLS, other high school students, CRWA members and members of the Fiji fraternity at Northeastern.

There is still much more work to do, but we’re making progress. Venture Scout Gwei Strong-Allen will lead a cleanup Friday, November 10 (when Veteran’s Day is being observed), 9-4pm. Sign up to register here. WE NEED HELP! For more information about phragmites and why they are a problem, click here.

And there will be another cleanup Saturday, Nov. 11, 9am-12noon. Email Sasha to register for that one: svallieres@thecharles.org. (We ask you to register so that we know how many tools to borrow.)
