Fenway Civic Association will be hosting two important park events on Saturday, April 30, complementing the Emerald Necklace Conservancy’s Ribbon Cutting and Open House Weekend.
A perennial favorite is FCA’s guided bird walk led by noted professor Dr. Gwilym Jones beginning at 7:00 AM. Then, an exciting “Arbor Day of Service” in the Back Bay Fens will follow. Led by professionals from Maltby and Co. tree service and the Boston Parks Department, a cadre of tree experts will spend the day donating their professional services for our historic trees in the Fens, pruning, fertilizing, and planting new trees. See below for details, and join in!
Birds of the Back Bay Fens:
Time: 7:00 a.m.
Location: Back Bay Fens park in Boston’s West Fenway neighborhood. Meet at the Japanese Bell outside the Kelleher Rose Garden (by the footbridge across from the Museum of Fine Arts).
