Thursday, June 7, 5:30 pm – What Lurks Below … The Unseen Beneath Back Bay and Fenway


The Emerald Necklace docents cordially invite you to a special event: What Lurks Below … The Unseen Beneath Back Bay and Fenway, on Thursday, June 7 at the Blount Auditorium, Wentworth Institute of Technology, 550 Parker Street in Boston.  The evening will begin at 5:30 with a reception, and the talk, by James Lambrechts, P.E., Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at Wentworth, will begin at 6 pm.

Have you ever wondered what lurks below your feet as you stroll the pathways of the Fens or sit atop the stands at Fenway Park?  Professor Lambrechts will take you on a journey to the underground for a fascinating look at what lies beneath Back Bay and Fenway.  From ice age to Olmsted, foul marsh to fashionable neighborhood, join Professor Lambrechts on this expedition through a labyrinth of layers deep below the landscape.  For more information, call 617-522-2700, or visit www.emeraldnecklace.org.  There is free onsite parking.  Register online by clicking here.  This is a free event sponsored by the Emerald Necklace Conservancy.
