Mystic River Watershed Association Announces Polar Plunge Jan 28

Saturday, January 28, 1-2 pm
 

The event is free and open to the public. Hot drinks will be served.


Rain, snow or shine – ample parking

The Plunge, featuring Association staff, volunteers and others to be recruited, will dive into the Mystic River Watershed as the kickoff for MyRWA's 40th Anniversary year - a year to celebrate and promote the recreational opportunities of the Mystic as well as the water quality testing and environmental policy efforts that MyRWA has led over its forty year history.

We have chosen this challenging plunge to brace ourselves for the challenges we will face in the coming year and beyond. We are starting with a splash as we get ready to:


• Build upon our efforts to achieve a water quality rating that will make the river an uncompromised destination for people who come to enjoy its beauty and recreational potential.
• Recruit more volunteers to advance our programs and help with the removal of water chestnuts, an invasive plant, from the upper river.
• Provide environmental education and outreach to youth groups and others along our watershed to advance their appreciation for sound environmental stewardship, and to increase their understanding of the river’s great history and importance to the Greater Boston area.


Prior to The Plunge, brief remarks will be made to launch this Anniversary and to recognize the people who have joined us.


About the Mystic River Watershed Association:
The Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) was founded in 1972 and has largely functioned as a volunteer-run organization, mobilizing activists on a project-by-project basis.

Its mission is to protect and restore the Mystic River, its tributaries and watershed lands for the benefit of present and future generations and to celebrate the value, importance and great beauty of these natural resources.
