National Public Lands Day- Weed Warriors

Join us in celebrating Public Lands day and volunteer for a fun day of stewardship at the Green Hill Property. Volunteers will help restore and maintain our Green Hill Property by removing invasive plants such as Porcelain berry and Canada thistle, as well as pitching in with stewardship tasks like mulching and weeding.
The Green Hill parcel is 5 acres of land neighboring Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site that is integral to the story of the Olmsteds in Brookline. Our natural resources team works on restoring the New England meadow that once bordered Fairsted's South Lawn. While weeding, we will be learning about how our work will impact the future of the site.
All experience levels are welcomed, following the safety and event guidelines. Tools and training will be provided.
