Mission Statement

To bring public attention to the MDC Reservation, wetlands, and environs by working with community volunteers, elected officials, Alewife area groups and the Mystic River Watershed Association to preserve and protect the area by means of visible presence of adult volunteer monitors, or school youth projects which include: public clean ups, survey teams, wilderness educational tours and classes, water quality testing and other projects which benefit the Alewife Reservation.

The Friends will also alert businesses and residents of the area of their environmental wetland responsibilities to Cambridge, Arlington and Belmont. Friends will raise funds for purposes of preservation and enhancement of the 115 acres public land Reserve in properly planned and supervised projects through grants, city and town funds, and from benefactors. Friends' volunteers will meet separately in crews, teams and committees to plan their work with the agreement from the Steering Committee.

Description

The Friends of Alewife Reservation is a multileveled stewarding and advocacy group that desires to protect the public Reservation land owned by the MDC and to preserve it for wildlife and for future generations, providing a highly accessible area in limited wilderness areas for passive recreationists. The group is run by a board of overseers that oversee activity and help advocate for Reservation needs.
