Please join our next meeting on September 21st (Thursday)

at 12:00pm at Fresh Pond

with Major Tim


PLEASE NOTE that our next meeting will NOT BE AT CambridgeSavings Bank, but we wil be touring the Fresh Pond Reservoir


      We will meet at noon at the Cambridge Water Department headquarters at 250 Fresh Pond Pkwy.  Please park at the western end parking lot (facing Fresh Pond Rotary) where you will be given a temporary parking permit for your windshield. 


The tour will last for about an hour and the walk will be between a mile and mile and 1/2 with plenty of stops in between.  We’ll be traveling on flat terrain just over 1-mile from the Water Dept. building to the rich area known as the Lusitania Meadow. With the Autumnal Equinox coming soon, change is afoot on the large and small scale before we notice the leaves changing color.


The weather forecast is supposed to be perfect with sunny skies and low 70's temperature but in the event of foul weather an inside presentation will be substituted.  


Tim Puopolo is the senior Park Ranger for the City of Cambridge, and is stationed at Fresh Pond Reservation. He is an Animal Control Officer, biologist, and educator that manages public use and information at Cambridge’s largest open green space. Before working for the City in 2017 he was employed as a ranger with the National Park Service.
