Squannacook Greenways wins MassTrails grant - Wednesday June 26, 2019

Squannacook Greenways is proud to announce that we were awarded a MassTrails grant today for $27,780. With this grant, our capital campaign is now well beyond its goal of $150,000. To date, the capital campaign has raised an impressive $162,592. We have been greatly moved throughout this capital campaign at the vast generosity of so many of our supporters who so fervently want this rail trail to be built. This is a great step forward in our plans to begin construction in 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, July 17, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the American Legion in Groton.  Anyone interested in this project is more than welcome to attend.
