Trail Building Work Party
Come join us for a day of trail work on the Mattabesett section of the New England Trail at Giuffrida Park. This very popular section of the New England Trail is suffering from erosion due to its current route. The work party will focus on helping correct this issue by rerouting the trail to a more sustainable location. A more sustainable trail route does not take the fun out of the hike nor does it necessarily mean the hike will be easier. Rather, a sustainable trail improves the long-term health of the trail, protects environmental resources, and improves the overall hiker experience. Work will include digging new trail tread and pruning/trimming vegetation. Work will be moderate to strenuous. Please RSVP to assist with planning.
Time: 9:00am - 1:00pm
What to Bring: food, water, gloves, and sturdy shoes/boots. Tools will be provided.
