Wetlands improvements to continue this season

Post date: Mar 25, 2009 1:57:20 PM

Plans have been made for continuing Wetlands reclamation progress this season, starting in April and continuing through October 2009. Email us at RoslWetlands@aol.com about the several volunteer opportunities to help maintain and improve your urban wild.

Boston Shines Day will be Saturday morning, April 25. We will tackle a large, unsightly accumulation of junk just off the Wetlands' Walter Street edge. Save the date!

Earlier in April, a City youth crew will modestly extend the perimeter trail in the low stretch paralleling Walter Street and add a loop-back toward Weld.

At scheduled intervals over the late spring and summer, we will cut back knotweed and water the plantings in the shady grove area, in from the Hazelmere Street entrance. Sign up for one of the time slots that will be announced!

A second cleanup workday will be organized in late October. The City will not be funding additional nursery stock for the wild at this time. If we secure alternate funding, we will announce planting workdays.
