Adult/teen volunteers are needed for a fun nature event at Fresh Pond Reservation—a parade to celebrate the release of reservation-raised monarchs back into the wild! At this writing (July 18) four of the creatures at the Water Department building have turned into chrysalises, with more to follow. The parade —open to all , costumes and noisemakers
encouraged—will begin at the Water Treatment Facility at 250 Fresh Pond Parkway, proceeding along the path to Lusitania Meadow. There, the butterflies raised by the Water Department will be sent off into the meadow flowers.
The parade will take place on Saturday, August 6, 2 to 3:30 pm (Rain Date Sunday, August 7).
To volunteer, contact Martine at (617)-349-6489 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
