Welcome to The Friends of Breakheart Reservation
It's nice to meet you
Plants were received at Breakheart for June, 2018, to continue with the Massachusetts Pollination Initiative.
In June 17, 2016-Governor Baker, in support of” National Pollinator Week” declared June 20-26, 2016 as “Massachusetts Pollinator Week”-an opportunity to celebrate and protect our pollinator populations.
Pollinators include bees, birds, bats, butterflies and other species. Pollinator species provide  significant environmental benefits that are necessary for maintaining healthy, diverse ecosystems, and produce valuable products including honey, propolis, royal jelly and wax.
 June 21, 2017-In conjunction with Massachusetts Pollinator Week, Energy and Environmental Secretary Matthew Beaton announced $50,000 in funding to plant pollinator-friendly gardens at Department of Fish and Game (DFG) and Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) facilities.  
The Friends of Breakheart are pleased to support this effort by DCR, led by our park supervisor, Anthony Guthro, and invite all visitors to enjoy these plants, birds and insects throughout the summer”.
