Thanks to volunteers who braved chilly and windy conditions earlier this week to clean up Dug Pond, Blueberry Island and adjacent roadways.
Keep Natick Beautiful‘s Pat Conaway writes that “Sadly, these areas have been abused for decades and the trash footprint has been challenging. But thanks to years of relentless effort of volunteers from Keep Natick Beautiful, Scouts, corporate partners, the Natick High School Earth Club, and others it’s getting better.” This time around, Natick’s Cognex came through with a dozen volunteers.
