Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 4th to help the Conservancy celebrate Earth Day/Arbor Day this year! 

This year’s Earth Day/Arbor Day celebration will continue the Conservancy’s work in Lead Mills with activities that include planting wildflowers and cleaning up the beach.  Individuals, families and small groups are invited to meet at the Conservancy’s tent at Lead Mills, just off Lafayette Street near the Forest River bridge.  Activities will run from 9 AM to Noon and seedlings, tools, water, and trash bags will be provided.  Participants are encouraged to wear gloves and sturdy shoes.

This is an annual community effort to preserve and protect Marblehead’s open spaces and is co-sponsored by Gilbert & Cole, the Conservation Commission, and the Recreation and Parks Department.
