Blue Hills Resource Management Plan

Posted July, 2012

In 2011, Friends of the Blue Hills collaborated with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to make sure all park visitors and people who care about the park could participate in setting priorities for maintenance, repair and improvements to the Blue Hills.  The Friends of the Blue Hills HIlls organized over 100 people to attend a working group session to develop recommendations for the DCR’s Resource Management Plan.  We later worked with the DCR to incorporate these recommendations into the final Resource Management Plan, which acts as the agency’s guide outlining what is needed to maintain the many resources in the park.  See the DCR website for a copy of the approved Resource Management Plan.
