Bring your family, neighbors and friends to march about environmental concerns in the Wellesley Parade this Sunday. Folks are lining up at 12.45pm on the corner of Elm and Washington Streets. Bring a wagon for the little ones. We have butterfly signs and pinwheels for them to hold.

Look for the sailboat and an electric vehicle promoting healthy, clean wind energy as well as the butterflies and flowers promoting healthy lawns and pollinators.  Sustainable Wellesley, Wellesley Green Schools, Friends of Morses Pond, Wellesley Conservation CouncilWellesley Natural Resources Commission, Friends of Brookside and others will march together. It’s so much fun, please join us!

You will enjoy the shout outs and cheers from friendly spectators along the route.

We are grateful to Laurel for organizing us, the Bender Family for building the float, the Wellesley Municipal Light Plant for their support, and the Wellesley Wonderful Weekend Parade organizers.

There is a great deal of environmental enthusiasm in town. Simply, email to learn how you can get involved.

womens-marchOn Saturday, January 21, folks from across the state will unite in Boston to march in solidarity in the Women’s March for America in Boston.

Let your environmentalist voice be heard by bringing signs that emphasize you are marching to safeguard the protections that exist and to push for more. This peaceful, nonpartisan march is open to everyone.

Consider jumping on the 9:47am train from Wellesley Hills into Back Bay station, then walking with others to the Common. For more information about going into town with Wellesley residents and/or making signs, contact

You can also meet up with folks from 350 MASS and MA Interfaith Coalition for Climate Action when they assemble at the Arlington Street Church, UU, (corner of Boylston and Arlington Streets) between 9:30 and 10:30 am, before walking over to the Common with a big yellow parasol.
