Mostly Gorgeous Now–Magazine Beach after Sandy, and DCR and Volunteer Cleanups

4 Nov

Magazine Beach, after our cleanup!

Thanks to DCR’s removal of broken tree limbs and yesterday’s cleanup, Magazine Beach looks pretty spectacular. Take a walk there and bring home kindling for winter fires, especially around the playing fields parking lot and the pedestrian footbridge–areas we didn’t get to. Please cluster other branches and twigs for DCR to pick up.

Among the twenty-five volunteers who assisted were high school students from Cambridge, Rindge & Latin and Boston Latin, graduate students and graduates from MIT (and the Sidney Pacific community in particular), Riverside Boat Club rowers, Cambridgeport neighbors and others from Somerville, Arlington, Medford and other parts of  Cambridge. We picked up gazillion sticks, raked leaves, and weeded, planted, and mulched at the bathhouse garden. Thank you, Mahoney’s, for donating hundreds of bulbs and many plants. And thank you to all volunteers and to the CRC’s Danielle Stehlik for leading this effort.

    Wow! These photos are beautiful! Your efforts paid off and it seems the the sun wanted to show them off!
    Organizers are to be given a big pat on the back for casting such a wide net for volunteers!
    And volunteers, nice going! You guys are the bomb.
