We welcome groups of all sizes to help maintain the trails in the Blue Hills Reservation!

Why not take your employees, co-workers, or youth group to the Blue Hills to help out?  Groups will get some fresh air, build camaraderie and see real results of their work to improve the Blue Hills forests and trails.




What you will do:

  • Cut back brush that obstructs the trails
  • Remove tree limbs and boulders that block the trails
  • Rake leaves from ditches along the paths to keep water streaming downhill
  • Remove invasive weeds that crowd out native vegetation

 What we provide:

 Training and tools needed for trail maintenance

  • Snacks, water—and lunch if you volunteer 3+ hours!
  • T-shirts

 Please contact us for more information about community service days at info@FriendsoftheBlueHills.org.

Your efforts will help ensure that 125 miles of trails in the Blue Hills Reservation are accessible for tens of thousands of hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders who visit the part each year.  Thank you for your interest in protecting and preserving the Blue Hills Reservation!
