In 2017 we have a few initiatives:

  • Supporting open space activists so they can do their best work. On March 11, 2017 we hosted an Advocacy Bootcamp at which 65 open space advocates from across Boston gathered to connect, share information, and learn about best practices. Thank you to the Boston Parks & Recreation Department staff for their terrific presentations, the Fenway Community Center for hosting us, and Whole Foods Market for donating the delicious breakfast and lunch.
  • Advocating in the spring for adequate funding for Boston's parks - both those managed by the City of Boston and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).  Click here to read the Green Budget, a publication by the Environmental League of Massachusetts, supported by many park friends groups from across the state.
  • Working to compile a list of capital projects for open space and recreation that can benefit from Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds.
Does your organization connect to parks and open space? Join our growing list of groups that care about Boston’s greenspaces and have endorsed CPA. Help show that parks are not just about grass and trees, but about all the people and communities that use them!
