2020 Roslindale Wetlands Urban Wild cleanup

Reason for cancellation: Due to Covid-19 concerns

The City of Boston's Environment Department and Parks and Recreation Department are organizing a cleanup at the Roslindale Wetlands Urban Wild in Roslindale. The cleanup will take place on:

Saturday, May 9, 2020 (Rain date: May 10), from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
40 Selwyn street, Boston, MA 02131

A major component of the cleanup will be the picking up and disposing of trash in the surrounding area. Another component will involve the physical removal and disposal of invasive species.

Invasive species are a group of organisms that are not native to a specific area and are harmful to the native organisms. This is due to the competition for resources that they create among the native organisms.

The Parks and Recreation Department will lead the education and removal of invasive species portion of the event. They will help volunteers identify and remove the invasive species that are affecting the Roslindale Wetlands Urban Wild.

Please remember to bring:

  1. Water
  2. Jacket
  3. A hat
  4. Sunglasses
  5. Bug Spray
  6. Close-toed shoes
  7. Pants or sweatpants
  8. Tools and gloves, if you have them.
