WORK PARTY: Stony Creek Partnership Field

October 20, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will continue the clearing of woody shrubs and trees from the field on the Stony Creek Limited Partnership Preserve to maintain the old-field character.  Meet at 9:00 am. Bring loppers, small handsaws, sturdy hand clippers, and work gloves. Park on Long Point Rd or Wallace Rd (the far intersection of Wallace Rd with Thimble Island Rd, opposite Long Point Rd).  We will walk in along the private road that goes off to the right just as Wallace Rd starts to climb the hill.  Take the first driveway on the left (where the road curves right) and look for some stepping stones going up the hill on the right side of the driveway with a BLT signpost at the top.  Follow the red blazes to the field, bearing left at the point where the trail splits.  Call Bill Horne (203-488-6146) for more information.

Many of you specifically expressed interest in helping with trail maintenance. The Land Trust’s Trails Committee, chaired by Bud Dannheim and Matt Reed, focuses on blazing and maintaining the numerous trails on BLT properties. Work events are scheduled during the week, generally on Tuesday or Thursday mornings from 9:00 to noon. If you would like to receive information of where the Trail Committee will be working the following Tuesday morning, please contact Bud (Gunther.dannheim@gmail.com) or Matt ( mwreed81@gmail.com) and let them know of your interest.

The work parties offer a chance to get to know some of the BLT properties and to spend a little time with some great people. If you have school age kids, this is a chance for them to pick up some community service credits.
