Ah, signs of spring! Crocuses! Bird song! User surveys about our favorite natural and historical landscapes! In the first, the Friends of the Fells partnered with the Tufts Environmental Studies Program to learn more about how we use the Middlesex Fells today – Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation Survey.
In the second, another collaboration with Tufts, the Mystic River Watershed Association wants to know not just how we enjoy the nearby Mystic Greenways, but also how we get there. There’s even an interactive map where we can add the trafficky trouble spots in the area – Mystic River Greenways Survey

My wife and I became Medford residents when we bought our first home in 2011. In 2016 we welcomed our son. We have grown to love Medford and spend a lot of our time getting to know our adopted City. Outside of my work on the Historical Commission we also enjoy exploring the Middlesex Fells with our son and exploring Medford homes as part of the annual Jingle Bell Festival.
