Trail Maintenance @ Houghton's Pond Parking Lot | Milton | Massachusetts | United States

For this month’s trail maintenance event, we are partnering with NepRWA to clean up the brook at Ponkapoag!  We will still meet at Houghton’s Pond main parking lot… and then we will carpool to the work site, don waders and clean up the brook habitat by removing golf balls.  We may also have some options for trail maintenance that day.  Questions? Email info@FriendsoftheBlueHills.org.

In case of inclement weather, we will cancel, so please sign up for trail maintenance alerts at the bottom of our trail maintenance page. Be sure to stay after for a pizza lunch!
