BUA is teaming up with the Friends of the Blue Hill Trail Crew on Saturday, October 4, 9 am – 1 pm.
Each volunteer will receive 5 hours of community service!
This program is designed to have volunteers work with trail leaders to maintain drainage structures such as culverts and water bars, and to clear the trails of overgrowth and downed branches. Volunteers will receive training in working safely as well as proper maintenance and use of the tools. We will work from 8:30 AM-12:30 PM. Lunch will be provided by Friends of the Blue Hills at 1:00 PM.
We will meet at 8:30 AM at the Houghton’s Pond main parking lot on Hillside Street in Milton (870 Hillside Street). Wear sturdy boots, long pants and work gloves and bring at least one quart of water. You may also want to consider bringing sunscreen and bug spray.
This location is not MBTA accessible. A van from BUA has been arranged, though is only available to the first 11 volunteers who sign up. The van will leave BUA promtly at 8:00 AM, so you should plan to arrive at BUA by 7:45 AM. Otherwise, you should plan to coordinate your own drop off/pick up and arrive at the site no later than 8:30 AM.
