Green Up the Blue Hills takes place on Sunday, April 30, 2023, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the AMC Cabins at Ponkapoag Pond.

This annual event attracts over 100 people of all ages to help protect the forest from the invasive plant, garlic mustard. This plant releases a poison in the soil so native plants do not survive. By removing garlic mustard, volunteers will keep the forest healthy for the endangered species that live at Ponkapoag Pond and all the plants and wildlife.

The Friends of the Blue Hills will provide all tools and training. Guests will also enjoy complimentary refreshments, crafts, music, face-painting and a scavenger hunt.

Sponsoring this event is a great way to align your organization with people in the surrounding communities that love the Blue Hills and want to make sure that the park’s forest stays healthy for a long time to come.
