Cambridge Pod Patrol Asks Residents to Help Keep Invasive Weeds from Spreading


Swallowort Invasive Weed

The Cambridge Pod Patrol, started in 2011, has made great strides at reducing the amount of black Swallow-wort vines throughout the city and at preventing vines from spreading to new locations, but we need your help as well! Fresh Pond Reservation has far fewer pods than previous years- and more work can be done!

Check out the new Water Department Website and the Cambridge Pod Patol Webpage.

For upcoming Pod Patrol and other events at Fresh Pond, visit the City of Cambridge Calendar  or check out the Cambridge Pod Patrol Facebook Page.
