Massachusetts Park Serve Day
May 12, 2007
The first-ever "Park Serve Day" kicked off with 52 projects around the Commonwealth, with more than 1,300 volunteers helping to clean beaches, picking up litter, painting outbuildings, planting flowers, clearing trails and more. NEMBA organized and partnered with seven of these events to build and maintain trails around the state.
The goal of state-sponsored Park Serve Day is to provide the public with a chance to volunteer and give back to the parks in the spring and spruce them up for summer usage.
“Parks, beaches, and forests are the jewels of the Commonwealth, and they belong to all of us,” said Governor Deval Patrick, who plans to participate at one of the Park Serve projects. “I am thrilled that so many of our citizens are taking ownership of these treasures and are ready to pitch in and help get them ready for spring.”
NEMBA was involved with the following parks:
Great Brook Farm State Park Harold Parker State Park
Leominster State Forest Middlesex Fells Reservation
Robinson State Park Wendell State Forest
Wompatuck State Forest
