Make Friends with the Marsh: Volunteer Service Days
The Friends of Nahant Marsh will be hosting “Make Friends with the Marsh,” a volunteer service day, typically on the first Saturday of the month. We encourage you to check our Events Calendar for more details or date changes. Some projects include planting native species, seed harvesting, invasive species removal, cleanups, and forest surveying.
The events are open to families, scout groups, youth organizations, and anyone interested in nature! Most projects will include moderate to hard physical labor and it’s recommended that participants wear appropriate clothing and shoes. Nahant Marsh will offer gloves, but you may also bring your own. Please feel free to show up and give us a hand!
