Stewardship Saturday at World’s End

Come join other park stewards and our partners at The Trustees to help with resource management atop the beautiful drumlins of World's End!

We will explore the local flora and fauna and discuss the ecology, natural history, and cultural significance of landscapes in the park as we work side by side to improve habitat for the native birds, bugs, trees, and flowers of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park.

Directions: Please meet staff at the entrance to World’s End. Parking is available. The entrance is also a one mile walk from the Nantasket Junction stop on the Greenbush commuter rail line.

What to wear: Long-sleeved shirts, long pants, socks, and closed-toe shoes. Please dress in warm layers during winter including gloves. Conditions can be unpredictable so please monitor the weather in the days leading up to the event and dress appropriately.

What to bring: Please bring a lunch and reusable water bottle. Sunscreen and a hat are always recommended even in winter. Tools will be provided.

Event will run rain or shine, however, may be cancelled due to severe weather.
