Event Details

With all the hardwork Stewardship Saturday volunteers put into the islands throughout the year our tools and equipment take a beating. Periodically we need to clean, sharpen, and repair our hand tools, pruners, and carts. Please join us for a day of maintenance and care, indoors and out of the cold at our Downtown office, as we work together to keep Stewardshipship Saturday running like a well oiled set of loppers.

 

Directions: Click here to create a customize set of directions. 

 

What to wear: Long-sleeved shirts, long pants, socks, and closed-toe shoes; mainly stuff you don't mind getting a little dirty. Some of the solvents and cleaners are oil based and could stain clothing though we don't anticipate that happening. Wear something old.


What to bring: Please bring a lunch and reusable water bottle. Cleaning supplies will be provided. If you have a favorite sharpening tool feel free to bring that, but keep your knives at home.


*NOTE: Work consists of natural or cultural resource field stewardship. Potential hazards include transit by boat, the use of hand tools, carrying moderate weight, working in varied terrain, dense brush, thorns, poison ivy, and/or ticks. Tasks may include data collection, clearing vegetation, debris, and/or trash, consolidating cut material into bags or piles, carrying materials, planting, trail clearing and/or light maintenance. Work may be conducted in extreme heat or cold.

 

Program destination is subject to change based on field conditions. For questions please call 617-913-5349 or email rachel_vincent@nps.gov

Organizer

National Park Service Natural Resource Partnerships Team

The mission of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park is to make the Boston Harbor Islands system—with opportunities for education, recreation, and restful solitude within an urban area—an integral part of the life of the region and the nation by protecting the islands and their associated resources while at the same time improving public knowledge and access.

 

The Natural Resource Partnerships Team is directed to maintain, restore, and/or preserve the cultural and natural resources of the park.  To that end the Resource Stewardship Team plans projects that incorporate a robust cadre of local volunteers to help manage and protect important natural and historic features with the park.
