Lake Cleanups

Galvin Middle School fifth grade students conducted a Lake Quannapowitt spring clean up on Saturday. April 29th. Galvin students volunteer their time to cleanups twice a year and their efforts help keep the lake area attractive for all to enjoy. Part of the team pictured in photo from left to right are Max Pierri, Rafael Michaelsen, Milo Pierri, Tyler Bosco and Issac Davis.
Twice yearly, FOLQ joins forces with Wakefield Middle School 5th and 6th Graders and adult volunteers in cleaning up the lake’s shoreline. Students and volunteers meet at the Lower Common to clean shore and park areas of Lake Quannapowitt removing trash and debris. In 2018 by partnering with the Sustainable Wakefield organization recycling the trash collected was begun.
