Summer is finally here, and a great way to get out in it is to help Portland Parks Conservancy update and maintain our city's green spaces!
Portland Parks Conservancy will be leading a number of park maintenance and cleanup events all through the month of July, including the removal of an abandoned camp behind Casco Bay High School and PATHS on Thursday, July 15. These events are a great way to get a little sun and exercise, while also helping protect the beauty of our city's green spaces.
Portland Parks Conservancy Volunteer Opportunities This Month:
The next step of our restoration plan for Lincoln Park is to fully restore the cast iron fence surrounding it. The fence was built – and built to last – by the Portland Company back in 1867, and has been protecting the Park ever since. 150 years later, the fence is finally starting to show its age, and it needs some TLC ($$$$$$$$$)!
Please help us restore this historic and artful part of the Park to its original, pristine condition. There are too few public examples at this scale of the craftsmanship of the Portland Company remaining – it's our duty to preserve and protect this one!
