As the landscape designer, ecological consultant, and project manager for this decade-long undertaking, Tom worked to restore soils, reestablish native vegetation, develop natural storm water filtration features, and improve public access at Fresh Pond Reservation. This highly-trafficked urban green space serves as watershed land protecting a nearby pond which supports Cambridge’s terminal drinking water supply. Tom’s work spanned master planning efforts and continued through design, construction, and monitoring implementation projects that followed. The project encompasses half of the 162-acre reservation.
