MyWRA to Host Invasive Species Event TONIGHT!

SOMERVILLE/MALDEN/EVERETT – Join Groundwork Somerville, the Mystic River Watershed Association, the Friends of the Mystic River tonight to harvest water chestnuts, an invasive species, using canoes, kayaks, and small boats.

The groups have seen tremendous successes at past events, and have added this evening’s event to help bring attention to the issue and the organizations.

Volunteers will pull the chestnuts by hand, and deposit the plants alongside a designated shore site from 5PM to 8PM. Groups will meet in the large field along the river on Auburn Street in Medford. Parking is available along Auburn Street, and you can view a map here.
