The Friends of the Malden River is a citizens group committed to drawing the Malden River back to vibrant, civic life. The group was initiated by community organizations Tri-City Community Action Program (Tri-CAP), the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA), environmental and urban justice advocates, and Tufts University’s interdisciplinary graduate program in Water: Systems, Science & Society (WSSS) in 2012. The group meets monthly to hear from local city planners, waterfront developers, and water quality experts, and develop a vision for the river’s future. The Friends of the Malden River has four working groups which focus on water quality, public access, outreach, and youth involvement. Please get involved by attending the next meeting!
