Blackstone Parks Conservancy

The park-keepers are back in action!

A mix of regulars and occasional participants have been hard at work removing invasive plants, spreading wood chips, and fixing trails.  In late June and throughout July we worked in all three sections of the park.  In spite of the heat, it’s been fun and extremely satisfying to know that we’re giving native plants some space to thrive, clearing sightlines for park users, stabilizing trails against erosion and damage, and increasing the ability of stormwater to soak in where it falls.

More park-keeping events will be scheduled for the late summer and fall: if you’re interested, please contact us or stay tuned to our website.
