Volunteer Day Along the Charles

9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Community Rowing Boat House
Please RSVP by Thursday, April 8 to

Boston Society of Landscape Architects (BSLA) will assist the Charles River Conservancy for a volunteer work day to celebrate Landscape Architecture Month. Please join us for a morning along the Charles River with your fellow Landscape Architects and members of the Community Rowing community. Work will involve clearing a neglected section of park just upstream of Community Rowing and the Department of Conservation and Recreation's public boat launch. Meet at 9:00 am by the Conservancy Dump truck (parked near the boat launch). This work will improve vistas and sight along the river as well as open up an overgrown section of park. Use loppers and other hand-tools to remove invasives and sight-blocking growth. Please check in with Ray Dunetz, BSLA President, upon your arrival and prior to beginning work.
