Rolindale Wetlands – Celebrating Acquisitions event

On Saturday, December 11, 2021, the community came out to celebrate building affordable housing while preserving the wetlands. Thanks especially to Mayor Wu, Councilors Matt O’Malley and Arroyo, Senator Representative Nika Elugardo, and Habit for Humanity.

Celebrating Roslindale Wetlands and 104/108 Walter development – Sat. Dec. 11, noon (new time)

We are kicking off our celebration this Saturday at noon at 108 Walter Street to thank and celebrate our many partners and officials working with us to advance equity and climate resiliency by saving the Roslindale Wetlands and creating four units of affordable home ownership. Invited attendees include Mayor Wu, Councilors O’Malley and Arroyo, State Senator Rush, State Representatives Coppinger and Elugardo, Habitat for Humanity, and others!  Join us in celebrating the acquisitions of 104-108 Walter and the Durst parcel, as well as the second anniversary of the Boston Wetlands Ordinance. We also want to thank you for your help and support and making these acquisitions happen.  Grassroots neighborhood support is a key to success!

In addition, LANA will be hosting a Roslindale Wetlands 25+1 Walk at 2 pm stepping off from Selwyn & Robken Road.

Calling for Helping Hands, Gardeners & Bulb Planters!

Sunday, November 14th at noon, we will meet to plant daffodil bulbs at the pocket parks at South & Walter.  We probably have enough bulbs to also plant some at Fallon Field and public spaces in the LANA area.  Bring a trowel, some work gloves and join us in planting 300+ bulbs.  

We want to get the bulbs planted for spring cheer, before the cold weather really sets-in, so it’s all hands-on deck.  We need your help.  Meet your neighbors, and join in for an hour or so, and let’s get the daffodils planted!

Thank you to Boston Parks for providing daffodil bulbs to beautify all of Boston’s neighborhoods!  They are relying on us to help plant them. 

So, grab your trowel and some garden gloves. A rake or 2 might be helpful.  And let’s plant some this Sunday, Meet at the pocket parks at South & Walter at noon, this Sunday, November 14th.
