The Friends of Spy Pond Park have scheduled work days for 2015 on Saturdays in spring and fall. The season's next event is Saturday, July 18 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (rain date July 19 1 to 4 p.m.)

The group aims to clean up the park and reestablish native plants throughout. You can help to control erosion and maintain the natural balance and beauty of the park.

Volunteers of all ages, come help us maintain fern and wildflower beds, eliminate invasive plants and weed out tree saplings around Spy Pond.

Teens earn community-service points, and kids work alongside parents.

Even if you have only a few minutes, please join us. You will be surprised how much noxious false indigo you can chop down in a half-hour.

Meet by the playground at Pond Lane (see map of the park on website).

Bring water to drink, gloves and garden tools, or use ours.

All volunteers must sign the workday waiver form each season (www.friendsofspypondpark.org/WorkdayLiabilityWaiver.pdf)

RSVP to Lally Stowell at lallystow[at]yahoo.com , 781-777-2759, so we know how many workers to expect.
