YM Rock Circuit Trail Work - Saturday, July 4 from 9-1?

A vital part of enjoying the outdoors is preserving and maintaining trails over time. YM has adopted the Rock Circuit trail on the eastern side of the Middlesex Fells and this will be an opportunity for both new and experienced trail workers of all abilities. Our work will concentrate on brushing, trash pickup, reporting signage & graffiti issues, and tracking invasive species growth.
