Join Timberland to Green the Cliffs!
Join Timberland and the Student Conservation Association (SCA) to transform Boston’s Geneva Cliffs on Sunday, October 20, 2019!
Located in the Geneva/Bowdoin Street neighborhood of Boston, Geneva Cliffs is an urban wild site spanning nearly two acres. The Cliffs are an essential part of the neighborhood’s community, offering a system of wooden paths, community gathering spaces, recreational areas, and more. Over the years, Geneva Cliffs has suffered from neglect and fallen into disarray, including serious dumping issues and eroding landscapes. SCA and Timberland have joined forces with Farmer’s Collaborative and Boston Food Forest Coalition to create sustainable community areas and green the Cliff’s landscapes to provide an inviting and natural area for the Geneva/Bowdoin Street neighborhood to enjoy for years to come.
