Green Up the Blue Hills
May 1, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Meet: Temple Beth David of the South Shore
1060 Randolph Street, Canton, MA 

Do you want to help care for the Blue Hills and have a great time?  Then join us for Green Up the Blue Hills, our annual stewardship event! People of all ages will help to protect the forests from the invasive plant, garlic mustard.

This plant is easy to pull out… but very damaging to other plants in the forest.  It releases a poison in the soil so native plants do not survive.  By removing garlic mustard, volunteers will help keep the forest healthy for the endangered species that live at Ponkapoag Pond — and all the plants and wildlife.

It won’t be all work and no play, though!  You’ll also enjoy complimentary refreshments, crafts, music, face-painting and a scavenger hunt.

We’ll provide all the tools and training you’ll need but bring your gardening gloves if you have them. We recommend you also wear close-toed shoes.  We’ll be working (and playing!) at the AMC Cabins, which is about a 3/4 mile walk.

Many thanks to Eric and Holly Klose of Boston and Georgia Lee of Milton for being sponsors of the event!
This program is also supported in part by a grant from the Canton Cultural Club, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
