Stewardship Saturday at Peddocks Island

Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM
Meet at MBTA Ferry Stop at Long Wharf or Hingham

We will be joining other volunteers with the Boston Harbor Islands for a day of service on Peddocks Island to enhance native ecosystems and natural processes by studying and influencing changes in park plant biodiversity.  We will explore the local flora and fauna and discuss the ecology, natural history, and cultural significance of landscapes in the park as we work side by side to improve habitat for the native birds, bugs, trees, and flowers of the Boston Harbor Islands.

How to Sign Up: Sign up on Eventbrite and e-mail Maryann to let her know that you are going!  We will be volunteering along with other individual volunteers and groups.

Directions: This Stewardship program will depart from Long Wharf in Boston via MBTA ferry.  The dock is located at 1 Long Wharf, across the street from Legal Seafoods and the main entrance to the Mariott hotel.  We will be taking the MBTA ferry to Hewitts Cove in Hingham, where we will transfer to a boat provided by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) out to the island.  Volunteers that are signing up should feel free to meet us in Hingham if it is more convenient than coming into Boston.

What to wear: Long-sleeved shirts, long pants, socks, and closed-toe shoes. Conditions can be unpredictable so please monitor the weather in the days leading up the event and dress appropriately.  If you are able, we always recommend wearing a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

What to bring: Please bring a lunch and reusable water bottle. Tools will be provided.

Event will run rain or shine, however, may be cancelled due to severe weather.
