The Charles River in the 1970s

Conservators website manager Dan Brody has been taking pictures of the Charles River for quite a few years. While the Charles hasn't yet attained the Environmental Protection Agency's goal of a fishable, swimmable river, the condition of the river and its banks is far better now than it was when Brody took these photos forty years ago.
