VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES!

(Lots of fresh air and work that improves one of

Newburyport's hidden treasures)

 

Three dates to attend to assist in the improvements to the Little River Trail System: (at this stage, each event is tentative depending in local, national, state and regional notices, and by local municipalities and their health departments)


 

June 20th - General Trail Cleanup for the entire Little River Trail System starting in from the five trail heads. Ploggers are heartily invited. Trash bags (and bug spray) provided, clippers and trimmers are standard equipment to bring.

Your volunteer hours contribute to the match for the Recreational Trails Program Grant!
