The Saugus River Watershed Council provided flowers to create a garden on the river side of the Northern Strand Trail in Saugus, near the Lynn line. The garden was planted during a cleanup on that part of the trail on Saturday, April 21, 2018.

Other “Earth Day” cleanups were held along the trail in Everett and Malden last Saturday. Nearly 200 people participated, including Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria and Malden Mayor Gary Christenson. Staff from Wynn Casino and Schnitzer Steel in Everett also volunteered.
Cleanups are planned for the Lynn segment on April 28 and May 12 with One Community One Voice and residents of Lynn Wards 6 and 7.
