Welcome to Trail Team 2015 – Bet you are ready for spring! I know that I am tired of re-scheduling stewardship projects. Although all the projects were included with the last newsletter, I wanted to send a quick reminder of this week’s project which marks the first not to be cancelled or rescheduled project barring any last minute blizzards.Wednesday, March 18, 10 to Noon Veterans Memorial Park

Review of upcoming park improvements and the related volunteer components. We will be walking through the park with Phil Hervey and the Town’s contractor, beginning at 10:30. If you can arrive at 10 am, we’ll do some quick litter cleanup.

Park in the eastern side parking area or Town/Y parking lot.

We will be having a series of Wednesday projects this year, for anyone who can attend mid-week.

And just for fun…

Friday March 20, 6:30 p.m. This events has been postponed due to weather.

Say Farewell to the Sap Moon

Sowams Woods

Savor the end of winter with a walk under a setting new moon. Learn about moon naming traditions and celebrate 8 years of protection at Sowams Woods with some maple treats! Easy pace to explore the nighttime woods while checking for signs of spring and perhaps taking a few photos. Park on Tallwood Drive.

For work projects, please dress for the day and outdoor conditions with sturdy shoes, long pants and sleeves. Please bring gloves and your favorite loppers, broom, saw, trash tool as appropriate for the day’s project. Insect repellant is recommended year round for protection from Lyme disease. Additional tools and gloves will be available.
