YLP: Looking back at the first week

Last week’s four days of work with this year’s YLP members were productive and gave a great example of the type of work we hope to be seeing throughout this year.

Rainy day docent tour with Lucy Robb

All six current members gained a good understanding of the program and of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy on Tuesday and Wednesday during our Orientation.  We discussed tool safety and risk management as well as took a tour through the Back Bay Fens with Docent Lucy Robb, pictured above. 

YLP’s first work project in the Emerald Necklace was to mulch the hillside planting at Mother’s Rest in the Back Bay Fens.  Take a look at these before and after photos!
