Volunteer Activities:  I started going to the monthly trail maintenance events two years ago.  I enjoyed it so much that I became a Trail Adopter, which means that I maintain it on my own.

Favorite activities with Friends of the Blue Hills:  I love doing the monthly trail maintenance events.   The people are great and I get to visit different parts of the Blue Hills.  That is how I found Hemenway Hill and all the great trails there.

Favorite Hike: I love walking Hemenway Hill and the surrounding trails.  It’s so peaceful there.

Favorite thing to do in the Blue Hills:   I like watching all the wildlife and hearing the birds.
