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.
