Thank you to everyone who came and helped out on Conservation Day! We had dedicated volunteers who ventured out in cold, soggy weather ready to work. And together, we got a lot done!
At Horn Pond, we were able to clean up storm debris, tidy up Lions Park, repair and maintain trail markers, spread mulch, plant flowers, pick up trash, and more. At the Cranberry Bog, the post and rail fence was repaired, a new entry pathway was created, and the area was spruced up with some tender loving care. Scout troops painted the red bridge at Horn Pond as their schedule permitted on days between rain events. Scouts at the Cranberry Bog installed and maintained nesting boxes to support local wildlife.
The Conservation Commission would like to thank Mayor Scott Galvin, the Woburn City Council, the Department of Public Works, the Woburn Board of Health, the Golf and Ski Authority, and Woburn Residents Environmental Network (WREN) for their continued support, assistance and participation. Thanks to: Lenny Burnham, Lenny Cadran, Rod Flynn, Gerry Kehoe, Joe Gibbons, Dean Iverson, Paul Medeiros, and Mark Rosenblum for their help planning, organizing, and setting up the event.
Special appreciation goes out to our business sponsors: A & B Tree; Bill and Bob’s Famous Roast Beef; and Reliable Fence Boston.
We are very grateful to the Woburn Lions Club, local scout troops, and all who came out in cold rainy weather ready to give back to the community!
