Governor Baker announced on November 5, 2020 that Boston will be receiving $387,005 grant from the Local Acquisition for Natural Diversity (LAND) program administered by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. This money will help purchase 108 Walter Street, the largest unprotected parcel in the Roslindale Wetlands.

Senator Mike Rush and Representatives Ed Coppinger and Nika Elugardo helped support the LAND grant application. City Councilors Arroyo, Campbell, Essaibi-George, Flaherty, O’Malley, Mejia, and Wu all registered their support as well.
