About the Urban Wilds:

The Boston Parks and Recreation Department oversees 2,200 acres of park land including 215 parks and playgrounds, 65 squares, urban woodlands and street trees, three active cemeteries, 16 historic burying grounds, and two golf courses. Over the last 10 years, the Parks Department implemented a $120 million rehabilitation of the City park system targeting every tot lot and the majority of ball fields and courts. 

The Urban Wilds Initiative is a volunteer-based program that is staffed by a program consultant and has no operating budget.  In addition to acquiring/protecting and maintaining /managing natural areas in Boston, the program seeks to conduct community outreach and education to promote stewardship around these ecologically important sites.

The Urban Wilds Initiative protects, maintains, and restores publicly-owned urban wilds in order to ensure the access to and enjoyment of these natural treasures for present and future Boston residents.
