Help Maintain the Trails without Picking Up a Shovel!

Do you enjoy the Blue Hills Reservation and its 125 miles of trails and 7,000 acres of forests?  While the Reservation is free to enjoy, maintaining it and keeping its forests healthy are not.  Please help us reach our goal to make sure people will continue to enjoy the Blue Hills.

Your donation will help the Friends of the Blue Hills engage hundreds of volunteers who devote over 1,700 hours each year to maintaining the park.  Your support will pay for the tools we need to cut brush, the shovels to dig out ditches for water to travel off trail and the refreshments to sustain tired volunteers.
