Stewardship Saturday at Grape Island
Sat, March 25, 2017, 9:00 AM – 2:30 PM EDT
Come join other park stewards at Grape Island to enhance native ecosystems and natural processes by studying and influencing changes in park plant biodiversity. We will work alongside our partners at the Trustees who manage the property and discuss the ecology, natural and cultural history, and siginificance of landscapes in the park as we work side by side to improve habitat for the native birds, bugs, trees, flowers, and people of the Boston Harbor Islands.
