Make Music Boston @ Magazine Beach

23 Jun

Over 200 joined us at the park Wednesday night for a gorgeous evening of folk/rock tunes and a cool river breeze. The event ended with two jam sessions – harmonica and ukulele – enjoyed by young and old. This event was part of not only a city-wide celebration, but a world-wide one–over 800 cities participated.

Heads up! Stories and Song (Mondays @ 10am), Zumba (Tuesdays @ 6pm), and Morning Yoga (Saturdays @ 9am) all begin NEXT WEEK! Head to the park with the little ones, or without them for some enjoyable yet challenging exercise and relaxation under the big old shade trees. AND, the pool opens TOMORROW, Saturday, June 24 @ 11:15am!

 

Twenty Pull Phragmites From the Swales–Many thanks to all the volunteers who dug up Phragmites at the park this morning. It was tough digging up those so persistent and intensely networked rhizomes. DPW provided tools and Elisabeth Cianciola, Katie Friedman and Lee Mabry from the Charles River Conservancy provided direction. Ten Honor Society students from Cambridge Rindge & Latin High contributed their strength. We’ve got a lot more to do–there will be many more volunteer opportunities to assist–but we did haul out many a bag of root masses. The CRWA staff will cover the area with black tarp now with the goal of killing these invasives without using herbicides. Want to help out another time? Click here. Let’s open up the swales for wildflowers!
