Help make Lee shine!
Join us for the 
Third Annual Greener Gateway Roadside Cleanup 
Saturday April 28th


 
It's that time of the year again...the Third Annual Greener Gateway Roadside Cleanup takes place April 28th (when it really will feel like spring). More people will be taking walks and summer visitors will soon be showing up. Although we've had severeal monthly cleanups over the past year, they're far from enough to clean up all the litter along our roads. Our Annual Cleanup is critical in helping Lee shine and demonstrating that we want our town to be clean and attractive -- welcoming and enjoyable.
 
If you're unsure about whether our annual cleanup is necessary, just take a look at what our team of volunteers collected last year and the year before. 
 
On April 28th we'll meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Railroad Street gazebo (near the Post Office). We'll end between 11 and noon - with a group picture and some good food. You can bring your own gloves, but we've got everything you'll need - gloves, safety vests, bags, and pickup tools. 



ArtWeek Event
Tracing Native Histories on the Landscape
April 28

Before it officially opens for the season, join the Bidwell House Museum and guide Robert Hoogs on a new interpretive trail as you retrace the steps of the Native Americans-specifically the local Stockbridge Band of the Mohican Tribe-who lived and hunted in this area for thousands of years.  As you explore the Native American presence that pre-dated early settler history-this was not the "howling wilderness" often portrayed-you can consider how Mohicans lived on this land for centuries before and after the English settlers. Sitting on 192 acres, this tour will show you some of the 4 miles of forest trails and stone walls on the Bidwell grounds.  The walk begins at 10 a.m. and is FREE.
