Working with Volunteers on the Greenway This Week

24, Apr, 2013 Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy

We have a number of volunteer workdays scheduled during this week bookmarked by Earth Day (on Monday, April 22nd) and Arbor Day (on Friday, April 26th). It’s a busy time on the Greenway, with daffodils in full flower, trees and plants budding or showing great spring color and lots of work to complete.  Before we know it, summer will be here.


On Monday, April 22nd, Weber Shandwick employees came out and helped out with weeding and planting natives in the Wharf District Parks.

On Wednesday, April 24th, twelve of our regular volunteers came out and helped us with pruning in Fort Point Channel parks.  In addition, 5 volunteers from State Street helped us plant natives in the Wharf District Parks.

On Thursday, April 25th, a family is coming out to help us plant a tree in the Fort Point Channel Parks.

On Friday, April 26th, we’ll working with another family to plant native trees and shrubs in the Wharf District Parks near the Harbor Fog interactive sculpture.


On Saturday, April 27th, we’ll be working with twenty or more Biogen volunteers working with our Green and Grow teen program and staff to mulch trees and plants in the Urban Arboretum (between High and Oliver Streets) and in portions of the Wharf District Parks.

In addition to these volunteer projects, our Horticulture staff is pruning shrubs in the North End Parks, our Green & Grow Teen Program is weeding and planting in the Dewey Square Demonstration Gardens, and our Horticulture staff is transplanting in Chinatown Park.
