Volunteers Clean Up the Blackstone Valley

  by    0   0

Mary Bulso is a project manager at LPA whose recent projects include the Mendon Taft Library and the Prescott Building in Lancaster. When Mary is not on the job making sure projects are meeting budgets and deadlines, she spends her spare time helping clean up and protect the Blackstone Valley Heritage Corridor as part of the National Heritage Corridor’s Volunteers-in-the Parks program.

Mary has been volunteering her time to help uncover and maintain the natural beauty of the area for ten years.  This past August, Mary was one of more than 30 volunteers who participated in a clean-up effort that stretched through Millbury and Worcester along sections of the Blackstone Valley Bike Path. The volunteer efforts not only get important clean-up work done quickly and efficiently, but the volunteer hours contribute toward in-kind hours that help leverage future grant funding.

Mary says of her volunteer service, “We have been doing a lot to clean up the river and surrounding area in recent years. I got involved because I feel this is something that should be done and have been happy to see more and more people joining the effort over the years.”
