Adopt a Habitat

For those who'd like to put their artistic, horticultural, stewardship or plant and wildlife monitoring skills to use, here's an opportunity to partner with folks from the water department to make a big impact on your favorite spot at Fresh Pond Reservation.

Examples of recent projects include woodland garden planting and maintenance, water chestnut removal at Black's Nook, parking lot garden planting, and invasive plant removal at the Kingsley Bioswale. To pitch your idea or brainstorm with us please email us

Lusitania Woodland Restoration plantings outside the Water Department Facility prior to planting.

Plantings started from seeds, rooted from cuttings, and divided from mature plants for the Lusitania Woodland Habitat Restoration Project (an Adopt a Habitat project). Visit the project pages for more information on this and other projects at Fresh Pond:  Fresh Pond Reservation Projects.
