Event Description

Arnold Arboretum Clean-Up Day: Love your Block
May 13 | 10am-1pm
Arnold Arboretum: Bussey Brook Meadow 395 South Street, Boston MA 02130

Join EPMA in supporting the City of Boston’s Love Your Block: Civic Engagement Week for a park clean-up at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. Love Your Block is working to unite neighbors and communities by revitalizing our neighborhoods one block at a time.

The Arnold Arboretum, established in in 1872, serves as a well-respected research institution and vital community resource to the surrounding neighborhoods of Jamaica Plain and Roslindale. This beloved public park is a National Historic Landmark and part of Frederick Law Olmstead’s Emerald Necklace park system. Its iconic views and plant diversity make it a prized resource to the City of Boston.

They will meet from 10:00AM-1:00PM at the Bussey Brook Meadow, 395 South St, Boston MA. Snacks and beverages will be provided; please bring a packed lunch and water for a picnic following our clean-up. Suggested attire includes closed-toe shoes or boots, flexible work clothes, and weather appropriate layers. Tools and gloves will be provided.

PS: For those looking to wind down after our morning of service, please join the BSLA's SketchBoston Arboretum Lilac Sketch! If you plan to draw, please bring a sketchbook, drawing supplies and plenty of water. Visit Sketch Boston's event page for more info.
