BNAN works with volunteer citizen councils to plan and implement its stewardship efforts along the Neponset River Greenway, the East Boston Greenway and in Bostonís Community Gardens. Supported with a range of services provided by BNAN, these councils of volunteer residents work as active and informed citizens to plan the development and advocacy for of linear greenways in East Boston and along the Neponset River and for the cityís 150 active community gardens system. BNANís work with the Council model began with the initiation of the Greenways to Boston Harbor project in 1994. With three miles of new parkland now built demonstrating the success of engaged and effective communities, BNAN expanded its Councils into Urban Wilds in 2008.
