Blackstone Parks Conservancy

Having fun and helping the little green plants!  We took advantage of Wednesday’s rainless evening to start reducing a massive accumulation of oak leaves in a fragile grassy area off of Loring Ave.  The added rain and sun will help revitalize the plant community there.  If anyone needs some chemical-free oak leaves to add “brown material” to your compost bins or use as mulch, let us know before Sunday!  (You will want to chop them up before adding to compost bins).

Due to a very high chance of rain and thunderstorms this Thursday, June 6th, our Park keeping event has been rescheduled for next Thursday, June 13th. We will work on invasive control and trail maintenance in the Center Section. Meet at the Blackstone Park kiosk: Parkside Rd. & E. Orchard Av., Providence, RI 02906. We hope to see you there.
