Water chestnuts

Volunteers are needed to assist in removal of water chestnuts both from canoe and on shore. The next community hand-pulling day is set for Aug. 3, and all supplies are provided.

Boats are limited, so register in advance here >>

The second event is set for Saturday, Aug, 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Blessing of the Bay Boathouse, 32 Shore Drive, Somerville.

Eradication efforts of water chestnuts, an invasive plant clogging the Mystic River and elsewhere in the watershed, have been ongoing since 2010.

The MyRWA is aggressively combating water chestnuts by partnering with municipalities, local environmental organizations, boat clubs, corporations and community members.

If you would like to get your workplace, community organization, church, club or neighborhood involved, contact Andy Hrycyna, Water Chestnut project coordinator, at Andyat or 857-928-9964.
