Join us for the first annual Squannacook River Rail Trail clean up!
First annual Earth Day rail trail clean up - Saturday, April 23, 2016 9-11:30 am
On Saturday, April 23, 2016, Squannacook Greenways will be holding its first annual clean up day along the future Squannacook River Rail Trail. We invite everyone to stop by one of our three locations shown below: 1) at the Depot Street and Center Street intersection in Townsend center, 2) behind Harbor Church, and 3) the parking area east of Shepherds on Route 119. Overflow parking for the Depot Street location can be found at the town parking lot at the corner of Jefts St and Riverbank Terrace. For the parking area to the east of Shepherds, the Shepherd family has graciously allowed overflow parking that morning at the Cherry Hill Ice Cream Too parking lot. If the Harbor Church parking lot is full, please use one of the other two locations.

The clean-up will run from 9-11:30 am. Squannacook Greenways will supply the trash bags at these locations, courtesy of the Townsend Board of Health's Earth Day clean up. Look for a truck with the Squannacook Greenways logo (the logo at the top of this email) at each of the three locations. We suggest everyone wear gloves, long pants and long sleeves, and wear bug repellent for tick protection. When you fill the bags with trash, bring them back to the starting location and we will haul them away.

Any questions about the upcoming Squannacook River Rail Trail? Please ask the Squannacook Greenways representative at the trucks, or email And keep an eye out for future emails announcing our buy-a-brick campaign and dates for guided walks along the rail trail!

Stop by any of our three locations shown above between 9 am and 11:30 am to help out!
Please wear gloves, long pants and long sleeves, wear bug repellent, and have fun!
