Wellington Fields Restoration Campaign

Volunteers working at Wellington Fields

The land owned by the City of Waltham around the historic Wellington House at 735 Trapelo Road has gone from a jungle of invasive plants to a place where neighbors and residents can walk and enjoy nature. This effort is the result of work by employees of the City of Waltham and many volunteers.

The task of removing large trees was done by the City. The removal of invasive plants continues through weekly work parties organized by volunteers of the Friends of Wellington Fields, a project of the Waltham Land Trust.

Mowed walking paths have been seeded with resilient grass species and plans have been made for incorporating flowering native species into the fields. Cheerful volunteers meet regularly to make this dream come true, but they need your financial help to continue the effort!

You can earmark your contribution to this campaign to directly support a variety of projects addressing the restoration of Wellington Fields.
