Boston Attorneys and Staff Assist The Esplanade Association for 2016 Annual Day of Community Service
Wielding large loppers and hand-sized trimmers, attorneys and staff from Pierce Atwood’s Boston office spent the morning removing non-native invasive plants and bushes from the banks of the Charles River.
According to Rob Ward, volunteer coordinator and program manager, the team of volunteers removed dense invasive species from about a quarter-mile stretch of riverbank, and, in the process, cleared enough trash to fill three 39-gallon trash bags. Rob also noted that “spectators will now have an unobstructed view for the Head of the Charles Regatta,” scheduled for October 22-23, 2016.
The Esplanade Association, in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation, works to restore and enhance Boston’s Charles River Esplanade.
