Ecumenical Earth Day Clean Up - Saturday April 27, 2019 at 9:30 am

Thanks to the twenty volunteers who joined up to remove 26 bags of trash from the Squannacook River Rail Trail on Earth Day in Townsend, April 27, 2019. And thanks to our co-sponsors Townsend Congregational Church, St. John the Evangelist Church, and New Beginnings United Methodist Church. Please keep an eye out for more volunteer events coming this year, leading up to construction planned for November 2019.

Who is building the Squannacook River Rail Trail?

In a word, you! The Squannacook River Rail Trail is being built by a local non-profit, Squannacook Greenways, with money from grants and donations only. No town money is being used for construction or maintenance. The trail will be maintained by local volunteers.

Volunteers will maintain this rail trail.

The next Board of Directors meeting of the non-profit Squannacook Greenways will be on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the American Legion in Groton.  Anyone interested in this project is more than welcome to attend.
