Fresh Pond Reservation's Volunteer Stewards

 Volunteers and bags of weeds

Join a select group of dedicated, energetic, and plant savvy Super Weeders. Meet your neighbors, learn about urban plants and watershed protection, and help out with natural resources monitoring and restoration. No experience necessary! Tools provided by The Cambridge Water Department and Friends of Fresh Pond Reservation.  We make gardening in the forests and fields fun!  Our current schedule is:
