Think Spring with the Stoneham Garden Club

Help the Stoneham Garden Club plant 2000 bulbs in the Town Center this Saturday. Yes, that's right: 2000 bulbs!
Flowers brighten up dull late winter days and provide much needed nectar and pollen for our early pollinators! 

This is a family volunteer opportunity. All are welcome.

Please bring a pair of work gloves and a small garden trowel if you have them

Goatscaping!

Goat Mania is Coming to Stoneham!

Stoneham Volunteers, in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), are delighted to be hosting a unique team of invasive removal specialists in the Fells: goats!

During the week of July 24-30, four goats will take up residence near the Botume House Visitor Center in Stoneham to help manage the park’s more aggressive invasive plant species.

Stoneham is on trend! Would you like to help keep the goats comfortable while they work? We are looking for goat fans to keep water and food troughs full. We would need 1-2 volunteers for a morning check-in and 1-2 for an evening check-in between July 25-July 30th. Volunteers would need to attend a quick training at the Botume House on Tuesday July 24th at 6:30.

Stoneham's Light it Up Blue brings Autism awareness to Stoneham by lighting up the Town Common blue for the month of April. Let's support this awesome annual event by helping to take down the lights at the close of the campaign. This will be a fast event--especially if there are a bunch of volunteers!

Park Serve Day with Stoneham Volunteers

Help give the Middlesex Fells a little Spring cleaning! We are fortunate to have this beautiful resource within our town; let's show the land some love!

Stoneham Volunteers will form a team to help DCR/Friends of the Fells spruce up the Middlesex Fells. Our focus will be on the removal of invasive species and trail restoration within Stoneham's section of the Fells.

All ages welcome and no experience necessary. 

Post Event Update

Wow; we learned a lot yesterday! There is an area off of the Crystal Springs Trail behind Greenwood Park where legend has it a giraffe is buried under a landfill. That is where Stoneham Volunteers convened on Park Serve Day to help DCR/Friends of the Fells with a massive restoration project. We also learned that the invasive species Knotweed and Bittersweet are NOT on the Friends of the Fells list! They have challenging and persistent root systems and they literally choke out the native trees and plants. We'll be back for another round of battle! This was a very rewarding event!
