Get your swimsuit ready for your annual jump into the Charles

The Charles River Conservancy has set June 17 for this year's City Splash and One-Mile Swim, during which you'll be able to jump into the Charles from the Fiedler Dock on the Esplanade. Because the event and race have proven so popular, pre-registration for time slots or to enter the race will be required, although the group has yet to set up online pages to do so.

In the '70s, the MIT Food and Nutrition Department had an annual test where they would scoop up some Charles River water at campus and let a baby Red Eared Slider turtle bathe in it for a few minutes.

The poor thing always died shortly after.

there's been a lot of time, and more importantly, a lot of cleanup! since the 1970s.

Brave Souls. God knows what's along those shores. Watch out for needles and the ghosts.
