Volunteers Needed to Help Remove Invasive Water Chestnut Plants 

Water Chestnut  
Learn about the relationship between climate change and aquatic plants while helping to make a difference in the Saugus River watershed. 
We are looking for volunteers to help us remove invasive water chestnut plants from the upstream portions of the Saugus River watershed for the next couple of weeks. Volunteers must be comfortable working in the river with waders. Some work may also be done from canoes. 
Contact us at if you are interested in helping out.

This effort is part of the Saugus River Watershed Council's Climate Change Awareness Project, funded in part by the Massachusetts Environmental Trust
