Worcester Intercollegiate Outdoors Initiative Earth Day Clean-up 2019

Saturday, April 27th; 8AM – Noon
Cascades East – 265 Olean Street, Worc.

We are teaming up with Greater Worcester Land Trust volunteers at Cascades East for Worcester’s 30th annual city-wide Earth Day clean-ups.

A portion of this beautiful tract of woodland which was protected as conservation land in 2001 had been used more than half a century ago for trash disposal. The Land Trust has been clearing debris from this site at every Earth Day clean-up for the past 7 years, often with assistance from Clark and WPI students. (See photos from Clark’s early participation in 2013, 2014, and 2015 for a sense of the challenge!)

This year the Worcester Intercollegiate Outdoors Initiative welcomes students from all colleges to come lend a hand. Following the clean-up, there will be a barbecue at noon at the Land Trust’s Cascading Waters Lodge at 135 Olean Street.

To RSVP and for more information, please email Greg Doerschler at or call 508-795-3838
