Friends of the Blue Hills

The Friends of the Blue Hills protects and preserve the Blue Hills Reservation by protecting the park’s borders, maintaining the trails and helping to protect the biodiversity of the park. 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: 1) Advocate for actions that will enhance the Reservation; 2) Encourage involvement in the protection and preservation of the Reservation by all users; 3) Guide enthusiasts in exploring the nearby remoteness of the BHR through educational, historical, and nature hikes; and 4) Work with the Massachusetts DCR to maintain the quality of the Reservation and provide public input for its management. We offer countless volunteer activities, including trail maintenance, ‘Weed Busting’ advocacy and more.
