Invest in the Emerald Necklace Parks

There are many ways for you to support the important work of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy. The Emerald Fund raises support that can be used wherever the need is greatest to advance our work. The Justine Mee Liff Fund supports restoration initiatives and capital improvements throughout the Emerald Necklace. The Olmsted Tree Society manages and cares for more than 8,000 trees within the Emerald Necklace.

Through the financial support of individuals like you, we fulfill our mission to restore our parks, increase accessibility, and engage the community. Thank you!
