Clean-Up Event, 4/20th



Time to clean our parks and trails!  Join TRWA, The Friends of Dighton Rock Museum and DCR to clean up the marsh shoreline at Dighton Rock State Park during low tide. We are looking for individuals, families, scout troops, school clubs, civic organizations, and corporate and church groups to come out on April 20th help remove as much trash as we can from over 1,000 feet of marsh shoreline during low tide.  We estimate there are at least 20 tires, 3 steel drums, and bags and bags of plastic, paper, and styrofoam trash that have washed down the river and gotten lodged in the marsh.  

DCR will have a limited amount of work gloves and litter grabbers on hand but if you have your own tools and equipment, it would help the effort greatly.  We especially recommend wearing rubber boots and work gloves.  Small hand held clippers are great to bring for removing fishing line.  Children are welcome to help, but must have parent/guardian supervision. There will be tick repellent at the meeting spot, but please take every precaution to protect yourself (wear light colored clothing & be vigilant checking yourself afterwards.)  Water and snacks will be available.

Meet at the main parking lot picnic tables at 11:00 a.m. We will have volunteers on hand to direct people to the different areas in the park.  There are jobs for everyone, but we are especially on the look out for a few adventurous people willing to haul tires/heavy metal from two areas in particular.  

Pre-registration is not required, but will help us plan, especially if you are coming with a group.  Call the TRWA at (508) 828-1101 or email
