Groundwork Lawrence is moving, but not too far!

We are excited to announce that we are moving the Groundwork Lawrence office. We will be moving to 50 Island Street, Suite 101 on the ground floor, Entrance B, and we encourage visits from the public starting January 3, 2017.

The build-out is almost complete, but we still have a wishlist of items we would love to have to  make our new space feel like home.

Green Team Corner: Bird Watching in Joppa Flats
On December 3rd, the Green Team went to Mass Audubon's Joppa Flats in Newburyport to go bird watching. They researched local birds, how to help bird species in general, and plan on bringing their bird watching skills back to the community of Lawrence. During this trip, they had the pleasure of seeing a red-tailed hawk and many other birds.
