Celebrating National Public Lands Day on The Greenway

26, Sep, 2020

The Greenway Conservancy is incredibly proud to celebrate National Public Lands Day this year with a special message of gratitude for our Greenway Volunteers. During this unprecedented year, the support of our volunteers and community partners matter more than ever. 

Established in 1994, National Public Lands Day is traditionally the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort. It celebrates the connection between people and green space in their community, inspires environmental stewardship, and encourages use of open space for education, recreation, and health benefits.

The Greenway is the contemporary public park in the heart of Boston and successful stewardship and management of the park is made possible by the hard work of Conservancy volunteers. From lending their administrative and organizational skills to our office operations, to educating visitors about our Public Art Program, to working side by side with our horticulture staff to make the park and gardens gorgeous, we could not do what we do without them.

Throughout this extraordinary year, The Greenway has been there for our community as a steadfast source of joy and renewal. With a dedicated team of volunteers working alongside our staff, we continue to provide the vital green space that has meant so much to so many this year. 

From all of us at the Greenway Conservancy, we say thank you! 

To celebrate National Public Lands Day, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite volunteer stories and invite you to learn more about supporting the work of the Greenway Conservancy on The Greenway by joining our Volunteer Program or joining our community of supporters today!
