Twin Ponds Park - Work party06/18/2022

Activities

Come be a part of the environmental restoration where we are in our sixth year of work. We removed a monoculture of blackberry weeds which offer little to the natural habitat in the park. Our new plantings will interact with all the fauna in the park, be they fish, fowl, amphibians, birds insects small animals or more. We create a successful and sustainable habitat where each living organism interacts with others in a mutually beneficial way. Non native flora and fauna do not provide the same support to this habitat. Come join us and participate in this renewal. In June we will continue turning a weedy strip along First Av into a flower and shrub garden.
