See What the Bottom of Jamaica Pond Looks Like
Text is from the Facebook event page:
"This Wednesday evening, Rozalia Project will be visiting Jamaica Pond with their submersible ROV to educate the community about the threats posed by marine debris and to give locals the opportunity to see what lurks in the depths of our beloved pond!
All community members are welcome to join us for this unique educational opportunity!
Rozalia Project travels the country with the ROV/sonar running marine debris pickup and education programs. In addition, we operate from the 60' sailing research vessel American Promise (Dodge Morgan's ex-record breaking round the world voyager). We can come to your club, organization, town, beach or waterfront to clean the sea floor as well as the surface.
They engage your kids, family, friends, colleagues, co-workers and neighbors with activities and presentations about marine debris, the far reaching problems this trash causes, prevention techniques and how to be part of the solution."
More About Jamaica Pond
Jamaica Pond was scraped from the earth by glaciers and preserved as a park by Frederick Law Olmsted. The spring-fed pond is Boston's largest and purest body of fresh water.
Among the events held here is the Lantern Parade each October, in which thousands of people bring homemade and store-bought lanterns and walk around the pond.
Walkers, often with dogs in tow, make heavy use of the path around the pond. The state stocks the pond with trout for anglers. Boat rental is offered during the summer. Please note that private boats, canoes, etc. are forbidden.
For public transportation: Take the 39 or 41 buses along Centre Street and get off at Parley Avenue (39) or Lakeville (41).
