Serve and Learn: Tree Planting At Roslindale Wetlands Urban Wild

Join Urban Wilds staff and the Roslindale Wetlands Taskforce in this spring's Serve and Learn event!

April 6, 2024
2024-04-06T09:00:00 - 2024-04-06T12:00:00

A Serve and Learn event is a special chance for community members to learn about wildlife, plants, and how we can care for our natural world. Not only can people "learn" through these events, but they can also put their newfound knowledge to work during the "serve" portion.

In this Serve and Learn, Urban Wilds staff will lead lessons on proper tree and shrub planting techniques as well as invasive plant management. Volunteers will get the chance to plant trees and practice their weeding skills. Many thanks to the Longfellow Area Neighborhood Association's Roslindale Wetlands Taskforce for crowdsourcing funds for new trees and shrubs.

Eleven years later, Mayor Michelle Wu and the City of Boston invite community-based organizations, businesses, City workers, and residents to come together for volunteer events and acts of kindness in recognition of our City’s spirit of care for one another in response to the tragic events of April 15, 2013.

We look forward to beautifying our neighborhood together! If you have any questions, please reach out to our team at CivicOrganizing@boston.gov.
