Seeking Volunteer Stewards

The Waltham Land Trust is currently recruiting volunteers to assist with maintaining trails in Prospect Hill Park and along the Charles River.


The Prospect Hill Park Stewards and the Charles River Path Stewards will essentially serve as the "eyes and ears" of these heavily-used trails, working in conjunction with the local and state entities charged with their maintenance. In both locations, volunteers will tasked with removing litter and reporting on conditions through field reports. Along the Charles River, stewards will also be asked to remove invasive plant species, thus those interested in this program should plan to attend a training on invasive plant identification and removal at the 15th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup on April 26th. Email Sonja if you want to be a Charles River Path Steward. Potential Prospect Hill Park Stewards should email PHP Supervising Steward Chris Leary at php.stewardship@gmail.com.

Stewards should be at least 18 years old and must commit to walking designated sections of the trails on a regular basis (frequency depending on season) for a period of at least two years. Living proximate to Prospect Hill Park or the Charles River is a big plus. 

Many thanks to the Foundation for MetroWest for funding support of our new stewards-to-be!

At their training in Spring 2012, the Chester Brook Greenway Stewards work together to move a large tree blocking the Western Greenway Trail.

10th Annual Green Space
Blues Jam, Saturday, May 10


We are thrilled to announce we've secured the jumping, swinging, rocking, award-winning Roomful of Blues for our 10th Annual Green Space Blues Jam. These guys, with a full horn section, will definitely get you out of your seat to dance!


The Jam will be held at Dassault Systemes at 175 Wyman Street. This is a large space, so there is plenty of room to dance, chat and browse the silent auction. Ticket price also includes food (carving station, pasta bar, salad bar, calzone station, dessert and appetizers) and drinks (beer, wine and soda).

Put this event, our major fundraiser, on your calendar and buy your tickets today!

What are the natural features which make a township handsome? A river, with its waterfalls and meadows, a lake, a hill, a cliff or individual rocks, a forest, and ancient trees standing singly. Such things are beautiful; they have a high use which dollars and cents never represent. If the inhabitants of a town were wise, they would seek to preserve these things, though at considerable expense; for such things educate more than any hired teachers or preachers, or at any present recognized system of school education. -- Henry David Thoreau
