Many thanks to the 50-60 volunteers who turned out Saturday morning to rake leaves at the park and plant bulbs just west of it. Students from MIT and BU, accountants from KPMG, Riverside rowers and neighbors participated. We gathered over 150 bags of leaves and planted hundreds of bulbs. Thank you Sasha Vallieres and the Charles River Conservancy for leading the event!

Stay tuned for additional leaf raking and phragmites removal opportunities at the park. On Monday, the Cambridge Conservation Commission gave DCR and the Charles River Watershed Association permission to remove invasive plants in the swales. Interested in helping out?  Click here.
