Successful Trail Workday + New Picnic Table

New Picnic Table on the Riverstone Preserve

Thanks to Jim Webster’s carpentry talents, there is now a picnic table on the Riverstone Preserve for all to use.  It’s made of white oak and very pretty! Thank you Jim!

When heading north on the WRT, once you are on the preserve take the 1st trail. It leads to the water’s edge.  As you get close to the shore, you will find the picnic table on a little rise to the right of the trail.  Bring a picnic or just sit a spell.  Let us know if you used it and how you like it!

Drainage Work Accomplished

Eight enthusiastic souls showed up for trail work at the Fox Farm Road Trail Access at 9 am Saturday July 23.  John, a new volunteer who lives right in the neighborhood showed up with his Kubuto excavator, which was invaluable.  Jenny, a hard worker from West Brattleboro, was also a new volunteer.  Thanks to both of them!  Paul, Lester, Jeff, Kathleen and Jim, veteran volunteers, also showed up, led by our intrepid trail work leader, Jason.  The excavator helped us dig better drainage ditches in several areas that tend to overflow.  A new 6″ plastic culvert was placed where an old rusty one was removed, and one culvert was extended with new pipe.  We trust that when we finally get rain, trail users will see these sections of the trail stay dry or drier.  Unfortunately, none of us remembered to take photos of the excavator and it’s driver, or the rest of the work crew and the work that was done.  Sorry about that!!!

Thank you to everyone who worked that day to improve the trail for all users!
