More than 25 volunteers joined the New Lawyers and Environmental Public Service Committees for their annual Franklin Park Clean Up on Saturday morning.  Volunteers collected trash and helped remove buckthorn, an invasive species that deprives surrounding plants and trees of nutrients and contributes to erosion.

Beyond the Billable checked in with Environmental Public Service Committee Co-Chair Staci Rubin (Alternatives for Community & Environment) to find out why attorneys should take advantage of these community service opportunities.

“One-day public service activities contribute to environmental restoration, assist organizations that depend on volunteers, allow you to spend time outdoors, and provide an opportunity to meet and build relationships with other Boston-area attorneys.”
