DePave the Way! Depaving Party

AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.

Trip dates: Saturday, September 9, 2017 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Join AMC and Somerville Climate Action in "depaving" a paved yard in order to allow a permeable surface. Restoring these landscapes to a more natural state allows for better runoff during storms while also providing a better habitat for local wildlife. As Massachusetts most dense city, 77% of Somerville is paved over. Reducing this number (however slightly) benefits all residents while improving the local ecosystems.
