Former high school teacher Pat Conaway sees real hope in the young people who help him clean the area's trails, waterways and roadways.
Pat Conaway admits he is "kind of a nut" about the environment, so when he retired from teaching in 2008, it didn't take long for him to find a number of productive ways to spend his time. "I wanted to get people fired up about the environment, to try to encourage citizens to get involved locally," said Conaway, founder of Big Hearts, Little Feet. A nearly constant presence on area roadways, trails and waterways, Conaway can be found leading groups of volunteers, including many students, to pick up trash, improve trails and remove invasive species. From beer cans to soda and coffee cups, trash tossed by the roadside washes into local rivers and, if left alone, eventually finds its way to the ocean, where scientists have found plastic …

MBTA Officer Richard Donahue was shot and lay wounded in the driveway of RMHS teacher Dr. Jeffrey Ryan days after the Boston Marathon bombings.
RMHS teacher Dr. Jeffrey Ryan lives at the corner of Laurel Street and Dexter Avenue in Watertown, a neighborhood that he considered safe until the evening of April 18.
