Throughout the course of the cleanup, participants connected with one another, discussed our zero waste programs, picked up litter, remove invasive species, and hauled cinder blocks.
Many of the volunteers from this event were from the Keep Hyde Park Beautiful, a group that works with Residents, businesses, schools, and government to make Hyde Park a cleaner, greenovate, and more beautiful place to live, work, learn, and play. Their focus is litter prevention, education and cleanup among other zero waste education campaigns.
If you weren’t able to join us this Saturday, don’t worry! Our next Urban Wild cleanup will be October 19, from 9 a.m. to noon, in West Roxbury’s Rivermoor Urban Wild. The Parks and Recreation Department will lead the educational and removal of invasive species portion of the event. They will help volunteers identify and remove the invasive species that are affecting the Rivermoor Urban Wilds.
