In partnership with Hopkinton's Trail Coordination & Management
the Trails Club is running 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. Usually rakes and hand clippers,
and sometimes loppers and hand saws.
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!
One more thing: If you have a suggestion for a trail that needs work,
or know of a specific issue to be addressed, send us an
