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

You are invited to join the faith community in Townsend to care for our beautiful land on Earth Day, Saturday April 27, 2019. Please come at 9:30 am to the corner of Depot and Common St (see map below). After an ecumenical opening prayer recognizing the glory of God in creation, we will walk and clean together from there to Harbor Church (1.8 miles). We will follow the Squannacook River Rail Trail, planned for construction this fall. Trash bags and transportation back to the beginning will be provided. Please bring gloves and bug spray. The entire family is welcome! We will be done by about 11, so there will still be plenty of time to attend Earth Day on the Common.

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, May 8, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the American Legion in Groton.  Anyone interested in this project is more than welcome to attend.
