CT Trails Day


Join the Friends of Brooksvale on CT Trails Day Saturday, June 4 and help keep the park looking great! There will be tasks for all ages and all abilities. Wear your sunscreen, perhaps insect repellent, work clothes, and bring work gloves if you have some and your water bottle. Steve Updegrove and Ranger Vinny will meet you at 8:45am at the Veterans’ Memorial Building (drive slowly up past the big red barn) to sign in and receive your instructions. Scout Troops are welcome as well as students those trying to cram in a few last community service hours. Work usually ends by noon. If you can, please call and register 203-287-2669 so projects can be planned according to number of helpers.

Some of last year’s helpers!
