Tuesday Trail Team
The Barrington Land Conservation Trust announces the formation of the “Tuesday Trails Team” tasked with helping manage and maintain many land trust properties in town. Work includes removal of invasive plants, trail maintenance and construction, bridge repairs, trash removal, and beach cleanups. Beginning Tuesday, April 5, 2016 and now continuing on the second Tuesday of every month (weather permitting), the Tuesday Trails Team will hold 2-hour sessions (10am until noon) working at various properties.
This is an opportunity to be outdoors, learn about local habitats, including best practices in managing these diverse properties, and to mingle with like-minded
members of the community. You will have a chance to visit some hidden gems of undeveloped properties in town. Work will be directed by an experienced project leader. All you need to bring is good shoes, work gloves, loppers and/or pruning shears if you have them, and a love of the outdoors. A regular commitment though desirable is not necessary.
Looking forward to seeing you at any of our volunteer events….new volunteers are always welcome!
