The need is never-ending to identify and encourage new volunteers who can help the SRKG build and maintain trails.
The Greenway would like to bring more volunteers “Out of the woodwork and into the woods” during the Fall of 2013. The Greenway working together with local Conservation Commissions, the Ausbon Sargent Land Trust and the AMC have put together these great workshops. Please join us!
