Mission Statement

The mission of Friends of the Blue Hills is to protect and preserve the Blue Hills Reservation in its natural state and serve as a watchdog of activities that might adversely affect it. To accomplish this we: advocate, encourage and guide enthusiasts.

Help Our Trails and Our Forests.

  • Individual Trail Events: You don’t need any experience to start maintaining the trails. You’ll be trained and be given tools too! Just bring your hands, gloves (if you have them), some water and a can-do attitude. You’ll find more information and trail dates on the trail maintenance page.
  • Community Events to Protect our Forests: Each year we have a family-friendly event to engage all ages in removing invasive species that threaten the forests. Please let us know if you’d like to help out!
  • Youth and community group activities: Contact us if your youth group is looking for outdoor community service activities. Each year, we lead groups of all ages in activities that help make the forest healthier. We also have some trail maintenance activities for older teens. We also have activities appropriate for Eagle Scout projects.
  • Adopt-A-Trail: Want to maintain the trails on your own time? Contact us and choose a trail (or section of trail), or ask for a suggestion. We’ll provide training – and furnish you with a tip sheet and report form. Adoption commitments are for a minimum of two years. Just let us know by e-mail each time you work on the trail, if you need help, and the state of the trail before and afterwards.
