Wetlands Cleanup Set for May 11

posted May 3, 2019, 5:19 PM by Deb Beatty Mel

The City of Boston's Environment Department and Parks and Recreation Department are organizing a cleanup at the Roslindale Wetlands Urban Wild on Saturday, May 11, 9:00-12:00. Volunteers are needed to help with trail maintenance, removal of invasive plants, and trash pickup. 

We will gather at 9:00 at the Selwyn Street entrance (use 40 Selwyn for GPS purposes). The Boston Parks and Recreation Department will help us identify and remove the invasive species that are affecting the Roslindale Wetlands Urban Wild. We will also help remove obstacles from the trail, such as fallen branches. The cleanup is being organized by Greenovate Boston. 

Please remember to bring:
1. Water
2. Jacket
3. A hat
4. Sunglasses
5. Bug Spray
6. Close-toed shoes
7. Long pants or sweatpants
8. Tools and gloves, if you have them.

This is also a chance to get acquainted with the Wetlands so you can come back later  and explore on your own.
