Rally and Parade to forest to Stand up for Silver Maples
Starts at Alewife T Stop, Cambridge
Saturday, June 28 10-12 noon
Rapid development and climate change are making floods more common and more damaging, and low-lying areas around Boston are threatened with future flooding—including the area surrounding the Silver Maple Forest, an open space where developers are planning to build a 299-apartment complex. Friends of Alewife Reservation, Green Cambridge, Belmont Citizen Forum and other local environmental organizations will rally and parade in front of the MBTA Alewife Station and to the Silver Maple Forest (also known as the Belmont Uplands) Saturday, June 28th from 10am to 12pm to bring attention to flooding, climate change, traffic, and other negative effects building on the Silver Maple Forest will have on our future. Alewife Station itself is only five feet above sea level, and also is at risk.
