This month, our 2017 Stone Soup and Speaker series concludes with remarks by Tom Palmer, of Neponset River Water Association. He will discuss the creation of Blue Hills Reservation, efforts to restore its woods and how those contributed to what we see today.

Soup is served at 6:00 pm followed by the talk at 6:30. $10 suggested donation. Space is limited and this year's series has been very popular, verging on "standing room only" attendance, so pre-registration is important and required. To RSVP or for more information, please call 617-333-0924 x22.
