Spring Stewardship Projects

Thank you for participating on the Town Trail Team 2015. This is a quick reminder of this coming week’s projects at Ossamequin and some additional details on those projects at Veterans Memorial Park and Sowams Woods coming up over the next couple of weeks. Also, we are looking for a volunteer to lead a weekend litter cleanup at Veterans Memorial Park in May.
