[ARCHIVED] Larz Anderson Park: Invasives Removal - Saturday, August 15th


Larz Anderson Park has long been an institution in Brookline and the flagship location for Brookline Parks and Open Space. Formerly the private estate of Larz and Isabel Anderson, Larz Anderson Park now offers visitors athletic fields, playground facilities, picnic areas, and opportunities to stroll, explore and relax in a picturesque natural setting.

Through this volunteer project, you will work hand-in-hand with the park rangers to help preserve and protect this fantastic resource for you and others to appreciate and enjoy. We need volunteers like you to come lend a hand and a few hours to one of Brookline’s premier parks to prevent the spread of invasive species and help reclaim an area overtaken with creeping vines and debris.

The project will consist of pulling/cutting invasive plants and debris removal. This is an OPEN PROJECT, meaning any and all are welcome, whether it’s you alone, your close family and friends, or a small, mixed group looking to get your hands dirty and give back to your local community. Stay as long or as briefly as you’d like; every little bit helps!

Volunteers will meet the Park Rangers at the Comfort Station by the Larz Anderson Park parking lot on Goddard Ave.
