Successful Trail Work Day, October 20, on the Lower Section of the West River Trail!

west-river-trail-nov-2018 - 1Charlie, Jennifer, Sue, Jason and Malcolm, our enthusiastic trail crew for the day, got a lot accomplished. They planted a post for the chain at the Rice Farm Road Trailhead and cleared the area for the new kiosk (for which we recently received approval from the Dummerston DRB!) Grass was trimmed and overgrown brush was pruned back a mile along the trail from each end. Drainage ditches and culverts were raked out, leaving the trail in good shape! A big thank you to our volunteers!

Community Service on Earth Day

Christine needed some community service credits. While walking on the trail with her family a few weeks ago, she noticed there was trash that needed to be picked up and decided right then that she would like to give back to the trail. She contacted Friends of the West River Trail and asked if we would sign off on her community service and we agreed. On Saturday, April 21, Earth Day, she and her husband Joe and daughter Ella spent about 3 hours and accumulated 3 large plastic bags worth of trash from the trail. Thank you so much Christine, Joe and Ella! We are so pleased that you chose the West River Trail for your community service and cleaned it up for all trail users to enjoy!
