Alewife Arts Mural  |  Cambridge  |  2004 

Noted Muralist David Fichter created a permanent public mural depicting the ecology of the Alewife Reservation resulting from an intricate nature study researched by the area high school students. This project leveraged a significant amount of funding ($12,000) by Ellen Mass and the Friends of the Alewife Reservation (FAR). The 80-foot long mural was installed at the Alewife T Station to educate people about the Mystic watershed area and the conservation wildlife and plant life.
