The beauty and ecological health of our Reservation requires constant care! Invasive weeds, which threaten wildlife habitat and Fresh Pond’s forests, meadows and wetlands, are a top concern. Volunteer weeding events are ongoing throughout the fall. Beginners are welcome. Learn about local botany and ecology while helping the Reservation! Long sleeves and pants are recommended to prevent contact with poison ivy. Tecnu will be available. Temporary parking permits will be available for free for volunteers coming from out of town.
Morning weed-outs take place Thursday mornings from 10-noon through October (and possibly November, depending on weather), meeting at the trailer in the Cambridge Water Department parking lot at 250 Fresh Pond Parkway. Contact Kirsten at (617) 349-6489 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
