Volunteer Opportunity :: Emerald Necklace Conservancy


The Emerald Necklace Conservancy was created to protect, restore, maintain and promote the landscape, waterways and parkways of the Emerald Necklace park system as special places for people to visit and enjoy.

The Conservancy's programs and funding support and complement initiatives by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, City of Boston and Town of Brookline who began the Necklace's restoration in the 1980s.

Their programs focus on:
-parks restoration and maintenance
-public education including presentations, exhibits and publications
-constituency-building and park advocacy
-volunteer and other activities which promote parks stewardship
-improvement of public access to and through the park system, among other activities.

The Conservancy's "Volunteers for the Necklace"  program organizes area residents and visitors to participate directly in clean-ups, landscape improvement and community plantings within the 1,000 acres of the historic Emerald Necklace park system. They offer a variety of opportunities for volunteers to come help us restore and maintain the parks.
