Summary

After 17 years of greenspace participation the Oyster Point group has already accomplished a great deal and they take pride in stewarding the planting areas around the Triangle Park between Sea St and S. Water St and the trees planted in Bayview Park. The group began the summer by weeding and mulching in the Triangle Park before adding several supplemental plantings. After finishing work in the triangle, the group planted four trees in Bayview Park as well as one tree in front of a home on the corner of Sea St. and Hallock St.
