Join Charles River Watershed Association for its second Highland Street Foundation #FreeFunFriday on July 12th at DCR's Herter Park! Families will have access to free canoeing and kayaking lessons with Paddle Boston - Charles River Canoe & Kayak, and will even be able to try their hand at fishing! Children can enjoy storytime in the shade and free ice cream from Ben & Jerry's, and will be able to get their hands dirty with Bootstrap Compost. There will be hands-on science demonstrations led by CRWA's aquatic scientist and science team about invasive plants, pollution, and watersheds. There will also be a cultural aspect, hosted by the Friends of Herter Park, who will give acting lessons. Participants will have a few food trucks to choose from for lunch options and are welcome to pack their own snacks for a picnic by the river. There's so much to do on the beloved Charles River, and so little time in a Friday!

For more details and volunteer signup, please visit: https://www.crwa.org/free-fun-friday.

If you are looking to kayak, please register, as we will send out waivers and requirements as the date gets closer.

Registration is not required, but is suggested to help CRWA predict attendance. This event will be held rain or shine. Parking in the lot is limited, but available on side streets nearby.

If you are interested in becoming a vendor for this event, please contact Madison Wolters at mwolters@crwa.org.
