**Important Update** Due to the scale and subsequent effects of the winter storm this past Tuesday, DCR is extending the deadline for the Recreational Trails Program Grant applications to Wednesday, February 4. This is a post-mark deadline, so applications will be accepted that are dropped off or post-marked on Wednesday, February 4.
Residents in South Boston who parked at DCR’s Castle Island parking lot, and residents who parked in Lot #7 and #8 at DCR’s Nantasket Beach facility may remain in the lot until 24 hours after the parking ban is lifted.
DCR skating rink facilities will reopen on Thursday, January 29, 2015 on their normal Thursday schedule.
DCR reminds residents if they reside in a town that is quarantined for the Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB), fallen wood debris from ALB host trees may not be moved outside of the quarantine. ALB host trees are quarantined in areas regulated for the beetle, and therefore cannot leave a regulated area unless chipped by person who has a compliance agreement with the ALB eradication program.
