Regrettably, we needed to cancel our volunteer day on May 2nd to spruce up the Squannacook River Rail Trail. But we still encourage people to walk the rail trail with those they are isolating with, and see the progress we made last winter. If you feel so inclined, we would like your help clearing the rail trail as you walk along.
One task you can do is to simply remove loose wood and branches from near the rails as you walk along. Our goal this year is to make the rail trail a nice place for a walk or mountain bike ride, so we are focusing on the few feet just south of the rails, as shown in the picture (except behind Harbor Village, where the trail is north of the tracks). We do ask that you avoid throwing wood toward people's yards, or across the straw wattles, because the wattles are a barrier protecting our wetlands. Where there are wattles, loose wood can be put on the rails.
