Stop by and say hi, whenever and wherever you see us!
Owen Norcross, Eagle Scout project takes shape. The hard work of planning and building of an informational sign for the bird sanctuary is a reality. Here is the main frame of the sign installed the weekend of May 24-25. The roof and sign will be coming soon.
And of course lots of Goslings taking a paddle with Mom and Dad.
I will be at the Nevins Bird Sanctuary Sat afternoon from 12:00 to 4:00 PM May 24 2013. Also this Sunday May 25 2014 from 9:00-3:00 PM. I need help in digging the holes in the ground and then mixing up the cement. If any one can get out and help me, it will be greatly appreciated. We will be working at the end of Pine Street in Methuen. Ma. from the parking lot across the Spicket River

Bond bill may send $35.5M to Haverhill, Andover, North Andover, Lawrence and Methuen may also have millions coming in
By Mark E. Vogler
—- — A $12.7 billion transportation bond bill signed by Gov. Deval Patrick last week could provide up to $35.5 million for projects in Haverhill — the most of any community in the area.
The bill, which received overwhelming legislative support, authorizes the state to borrow money for the rehabilitation and repair of the Basiliere Bridge, the redevelopment of the Merrimack Street Garage and the continued planning and construction of the Bradford Rail Trail.
The $3.1 million authorized for Methuen targets these projects: $1.5 million for the repaving of Merrimack Street; $1 million for design and public safety improvements of the intersection of Burnham Road and Routes 110 and 113; $500,000 for survey, design and improvements to the Methuen Rail Trail; and $100,000 for the planning and upgrade of traffic signals at the intersection of Route 113 and Tyler Street.
9:00 AM there will be a group walk going NORTH Using the Salem Trail!
Join us for both or either!
The neighbors along the trail have been putting in little gardens transforming the edge of the trail from something ugly into something productive. And the Methuen Rail Trail Alliance is helping out!
More group cleanups will be needed to remove the rest of the weed trees, oil barrels and tires that line the border of the trail, but eventually it will get there! Join us for the next group cleanup!
