Earthwise Aware

Volunteers in the Lusitania Meadow

Earthwise Aware is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that teaches nature conservation as a way of life. They partner with local public lands to provide educational and volunteer opportunities to the public as a way to further promote overall nature literacy. Learn more about the organization here.

Here at Fresh Pond, Earthwise Aware provides educational programming, regular event series, and an opportunity for the community to get in involved in citizen science. Data collected by volunteers on the property become available to climate scientists to use for a better understanding of the ecology and phenology of Greater Boston.
