Preserving Nature’s Legacy: A Tribute to Charles Eliot with DCR Ranger Dan Byrnes

Community Meeting Room, Main Library, 40 Washington Street, Quincy, MA, 02169

Welcome back the Friends of the Blue Hills! Join us as we learn about Charles Eliot, a visionary landscape architect who stood as the founding force behind the Blue Hills Reservation. Instrumental in the late 19th century, Eliot played a pivotal role in shaping America’s approach to public spaces. As the landscape architect for the Metropolitan Park Commission, he advocated for the creation of the Blue Hills Reservation. Eliot’s commitment to preserving and accessible natural beauty endures in the legacy of the Blue Hills, a testament to his enduring influence on landscape conservation. Discover the fascinating tales behind this natural gem, spanning over 7,000 acres across Milton, Quincy, Braintree, Canton, and Dedham.

Thank you to the Friends of the Blue Hills & DCR  Ranger Dan Byrnes for leading this exciting & informational event!
