EXPLORING NUT ISLAND
Saturday, May 9, 1 p.m.
(Optional bring your own picnic at 12:30 p.m.)

Ever wonder what's going on inside the beautiful brick building on Nut Island?  John Flaherty, Senior Operator of the Headworks, will demystify us on a tour through the interior of the building.  Lois Murphy,founding member of the Houghs Neck Garden Club and a member of the Nut Island Citizens Advisory Committee, will show us the gorgeous views from the Community Room and then take us on a stroll around the island to view the wildflowers gardens, spectacular views and explain the role of active citizens working with the MWRA to create this lovely park. To cap it off, we will also be serenaded by Mike Cotter with his famous song "The Nut Island Blues"!

Meet at the building entrance (near the flagpoles).  Parking is available in front of building, at the pier and along the right hand side of the road as you exit.  Do not park along the side of the road on which you entered the park.  Nut Island is on the tip of Houghs Neck.  Take Sea Street to the end, go left up Sea Avenue and the park entrance will be on the right.

Note:  Because the Headworks is a working facility, the MWRA will not allow anyone under 18 from attending the inside part of the tour.
