Meeting with Townsend Conservation Commission
Wednesday May 22nd at 8:00 pm
Squannacook Greenways will be meeting with the Townsend Conservation Commission on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 8:00 pm in the Selectmen's Chambers in Memorial Hall.  We have filed a Notice of Intent, and we have had help in this filing from Stan Dillis of the engineering firm Ducharme and Dillis.  The filing documents can be found on our website.  The public is invited to attend.

This is an important meeting because it represents the final hurdle in our environmental permitting process.  We have already finished the process in Groton and at the state level.  This is an essential step as we work toward a construction start in November of this year.

Squannacook Greenways will be building a stone dust rail trail similar to the Mass Central Rail Trail shown above.

More volunteer days coming in 2019!
As we approach trail construction, we will need lots of volunteers! First, we'll need help clearing brush and trees from the rail corridor-a big job! Next, we'll install erosion control barriers to protect the resource areas. We'll use straw-filled tubes known as "wattles" that we'll stake down in designated areas.  So keep an eye out for more events coming before construction begins in November 2019.

Thanks to the twenty volunteers who helped clean up the rail trail on Earth Day.

And thanks to the local churches that co-sponsored the event!
