Come join me along the Upper Mystic Lake to clean up trash along the shoreline. There are many spots to socially distance along the upper lake and pick up trash. Trash will be located between the shoreline and Mystic Valley Parkway- you will see many “desire lines” where people have made their way to the shoreline.
The CITO event runs from 5:30pm - 6:30pm. If there is heavy rain or thunderstorms I will move the event to Wednesday May 12th at the same time and put an anncouncement on the cache page. If the parking lot is filled, just park in one of the nearby lots and walk over.
The event will comply with the Massachusetts COVID-19 requirements which currently are:
- Face coverings must be worn
- Must maintain a distance of six feet or more from others at all times
- Contact tracing (your name and phone number will be gathered at the event)
Event announcements will be made if the COVID-19 requirements change.
Please bring with you:
All attendees will earn their CITO souvenior and be eligible to log the Let's Improve the Outdoors - Locationless cache.
This cleanup is part of the Mystic River Watershed Association Self Guided Cleanups. This area is one of the areas they are targeting to ensure trash doesn't make it's way down to the ocean. "By removing litter from parks and paths you are reducing the amount of trash that ends up in the water (think: saving ducks, turtles, whales from eating or getting caught in trash!)"
