Help clear land trust trails

Oct 30, 2019

Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust is inviting nature lovers and other members of the public to volunteer at a series of work parties to help maintain the trails on several DNRT properties in town.

Volunteers will help pick up trash, tackle invasive plants, trim trails, and lay boardwalks at the properties. Participants are encouraged to wear closed-toe shoes and long pants.

Coffee, snacks, and tools will be provided at every event, which will all take place from 9 a.m. to noon.

A work party will be trimming trails and getting rid of trash and invasive plants at the Paskamansett Woods Reserve on Chase Road on November 15.

On November 20, volunteers will help clear out the old house and barn foundations at the Frank Knowles-Little River Reserve on 701 Potomska Road. People will also be trail trimming, installing trail markers, and laying down boardwalks.

Help DNRT create new trails and boardwalks at their newest property, Dike Creek Reserve, at 227 Bakerville Road on November 22 and again on December 17.

On December 10, participants will be helping clear stone walls and invasive plants at the Ocean View Farm property at 28 Allen’s Neck Road, South Dartmouth.

Finally, come back to the head office on December 20 and help clear stone walls, tackle invasive plants, and burn brush at DNRT’s Helfand Farm office on 318 Chase Road.
