Welcome to Green Team! On Monday, July 8 we welcomed our group of roughly 30 young people to the program. We have a great group of people from Boston and Brookline. Each young person is working in one of our 3 crews throughout the Emerald Necklace.
Over the first two days of Green Team, we ran an orientation where members learned more about the Conservancy, participated in a workshop led by the Anti-Defamation League of New England, and got to know the people in their crews. Above is a picture of part of a game of ‘Where the Wind Blows,’ which served as a way to get to know everyone. The week continued to be a whirlwind of activity — from learning about tool and workplace safety on Tuesday afternoon to discussing the range invasive species that occupy the Emerald Necklace, we were quite busy through out the week.
