Stewardship Saturday at Charlestown Navy Yard

Join other park stewards to help us get our tools into fighting shape for future work on the islands!

Come join park biologists and volunteer stewards for Stewardship Saturday. Help us maintain our hand tools for future work on the islands. We will clean, sharpen, and workshop the tools that are vital to our ecological restoration work throughout the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park – no prior experience necessary! We will demonstrate how to maintain each tool.

Directions: Work will be conducted at the Charlestown Navy Yard. Free parking is available at this location. If you would like to park at the Navy Yard, please contact Laura Yates ([email protected]) prior to the event with your car’s make and model, license plate number, and state of registration.
