Upper Charles Rail Trail Cleanup Scheduled

by Ken Henderson

Saturday, June 12, 2010

9:00am - Noon

(Rain date is Sunday, June 13, 2010, Noon to 3:00 PM)

Meet at the rail bed near the Brook Street Town Well


Please join us for a morning of clearing and cleanup of the Upper Charles
Rail Trail.

Bring bow saws or lopping shears.  Work boots, gloves, long sleeves, and
long pants are recommended.  Being a cleanup, there will be mosquitoes and areas of poison ivy. 

Share in the future of our rail trail on this cleanup day. Many hands make lighter work.

Park at the access road near the Holliston Town Well off of Brook Street.
From Washington Street turn onto Brook Street, turn left at Mayflower
Landing (next street), turn right at the paved access drive just before the
railbed. Access to the town well is on the left. Please make sure that you
do not block the access gate to the town well building.

The rail trail is starting to take shape. The town purchased a section of
land between Hopping Brook Road and South Street in November 2009 and has cleaned up that section. We hope to smooth out the damage from the dirt bikes and ATV's this summer. We are getting very close to purchasing another section and will be leasing the remainder. We hope to secure the entire 6.7 miles of right of way in either ownership or lease this year.

Please email me that you will be attending so we have a good idea of how
large the group will be.

See you there........
