Come Help

We are going out again this weekend to hopefully finish the clearing of brush at the depot area. Looking for a few volunteers to help out. We`ll be out early 7:30-8am, so if you have plans for the day hopefully you can swing by and help out for an hour. Bring gloves and lopers if you have them. Let me know what day works better and I will post which day we are going out. Thanks or 978-685-3639



chance to volunteer

We are planning a day to clear the brush by the depot parking area, to make way for the new informational kiosk. Looking for a few volunteers to help out. I will follow up with a date and time. If interested please e-mail tim vermette at

It should only take an hour or two and we will chip the trees to save and use as mulch, the rest will go to the city to compost.

The framework is complete for the kiosk and we will be having a day or two to help put that together, if you can`t help with the brush clearing.

Thanks and hope your enjoying the trail




We are having our first working party for the kiosk this Monday night at 5:30 for a couple of hours. We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help. If you have thought of helping out, here is a chance.   Please contact Tim Vermette at and I will forward the address to you.

Thanks in advance. we will post pictures of the kiosk soon
