This year’s cleanup will target eleven communities: Acton, Concord, Framingham, Hudson, Marlborough, Maynard, Northborough, Stow, Sudbury, Wayland, and Westborough. The cleanup will be followed by celebrations along the rivers, where volunteers enjoy a pizza lunch while sharing stories of what they pulled out.
