In partnership with Hopkinton's Trail Coordination & Management
the Trails Club runs a trail maintenance
workday on the first Saturday of each month. The work will vary
depending upon the needs at each site: trail clearing,
cleaning out drainage ditches, removing invasive plants, and more.
Participants will need gloves and sturdy footwear, and tools
appropriate for the work to be done.
This is a great opportunity to give back to the trails you love. Each
workday lasts just a few hours, and you'll be with a fun group of
people. By the way, if you're a student or Scout in need of community
service hours, this qualifies!
Curious about the projects being considered? The TCMC maintains a spreadsheet with the info. If you have a suggestion for a trail that needs work,
or know of a specific issue to be addressed, send us an
Date: Saturday, March 2
Location: Pratt Farm/Fruit Street
Meeting/parking location: Pratt Farm parking area (next to the pond, 110 Fruit Street). See notes below.
Work to be done: Move bridge/boardwalk materials to the work site (and maybe build some bridges/boardwalks)
Tools: Gloves, strong backs
We need to move lumber from the parking area back to worksites along
the Whitehall Brook trail. If time and conditions allow, we'll start
building some bridges & boardwalks. If the parking area is too
muddy, we'll park/meet at the short access road opposite 57 Fruit St.
