Bringing the Roslindale Wetlands another step toward restoration, volunteers planted dozens of trees on Saturday, May 15. Those helping out included neighbors and a team of corporate volunteers from Chadwick Martin Bailey under the aegis of Boston Cares, a nonprofit that facilitates volunteer opportunities.

Trees planted include hardy varieties such as red maple and swamp oak, as well as serviceberry, pagoda dogwood, tupelo, and bay magnolia. A number of shrubs were also donated to the planting effort, including buttonbush, American cranberry, elderberry, swamp milkweed, and bladdernut.

It was a great day. Many thanks to everyone for their efforts!
