One of Keep America Beautiful’s newest affiliates, Keep Natick Beautiful, received help from MathWorks volunteers for a recent cleanup. 

Keep Natick Beautiful received support from MathWorks for its recent cleanup day in late June. This was the third time MathWorks joined Keep Natick Beautiful to give back to their community. MathWorks is a developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists. Its mission is to “Do the Right Thing” whether for a staff member, customers or communities. The company did just that on this most recent cleanup. 

The MathWorks volunteers paddled in canoes throughout Fisk Pond in Natick, Massachusetts, while they picked up shoreline litter and pulled water chestnuts out of the pond. Water chestnuts are a type of weed that grows rapidly underwater. The concern with this type of weed is that it can increase sediment levels and become a breeding place for mosquitoes. After canoeing, the volunteers then cut infringing vegetation along the Henry Wilson Trail. After these two important tasks, the volunteers worked their way to Massachusetts Route 135 where they picked up trash along the highway.

Keep Natick Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful thank the MathWorks volunteers for their effort in helping to keep the commnunity where they work clean.

“We want to take this opportunity to celebrate and thank MathWorks for its extraodinary commitment to our community,” said Keep Natick Beautiful Board President Patrick Conaway.
