Branch Out


Branch Out connects students with opportunities to learn about and be stewards of Boston’s urban ecosystem. Volunteers will engage in service for the people, plants, animals, and public spaces of Boston while building community on campus and in the city. In the past, Branch Out has worked with COASTSWEEP, Boston Nature Center, The Esplanade Association, Save that Stuff, and Bikes not Bombs. Service projects include beach cleanups, tree planting, invasive species removal, clam monitoring, and more.

Time Commitment

We hope to provide a range of weekly and one-time opportunities that accommodate a variety of interests and schedules.
