Volunteers are vital to the success of our efforts. The APC hosts several clean up projects each year with groups like “Boston Shines,” the Massachusetts Bar Association, the Neighborhood Youth Corps, and the MIT Students Community Service Program.

On Saturday, September 26th, 2015, we held our annual fall campaign against trash and invasives at the Bussey Brook meadow. A great group of MIT and Harvard students and a wonderful 8th grader joined us on a beautiful morning in a highly effective onslaught.

The Arboretum Park Conservancy participated in BOSTON SHINES on Saturday April 27, 2013 from 10am to 1:00pm. Volunteers from Boston Cares came to the Bussey Brook Meadow and attacked bitttersweet vines, invasive roses, garlic mustard and picked up trash. A great day for us all!
