Blackstone Parks Conservancy
We are happy to announce that we have a few dates and times nailed down for park-keeping. We are trying a few different times of day in the hope that everyone finds a time that works for them. As always, you are welcome for all or part of the 90 minutes.
May 6 (Thursday) 12:30 – 2:00. York Pond Meadow. We will remove invasive plants – garlic mustard and mugwort. This is relatively light intensity work since the soil is soft right now. Please rsvp and bring your own gloves, and tools if you have them: digging tool (weeder, trowel).
May 15 (Saturday). 10:30- 12:00. North Section trails. We will stake logs in the woods above Gulf Road, and remove invasive plants (knotweed and garlic mustard).
June 2 (Wednesday) 5:00 – 6:30. South Section invasive plant removal. Meeting spot tbd.
If you plan to attend, please register to comply with contact tracing requirements, and bring your own water and a mask.
Hope to see you soon!
