Janie Katz joined us last Saturday to help remove the invasive weed, garlic mustard, from where it is threatening native species at Ponkapoag Pond.

Like many Greater Boston residents, Janie loves to bring her family from Cambridge to enjoy the Blue Hills.  Janie, however, does not own a car.  She said her family is happy to take the Redline train to Ashmont and then hop on the #240 bus to Reedville.  She says to get to the AMC camps at Ponkapoag where they stayed the week, they took a beautiful walk through the woods.  Janie hopes more people will follow her example and enjoy the Blue Hills ‘car free.’

Let us know if you’re like Janie and bike, walk or take the train to the Blue Hills!
