Nashoba Trail Community Service Trail Day

This day of service is for Trail work on the new Nashoba Trail connecting Acton’s Trail Through Time at Bruce Freeman Rail Trail with Littleton’s Sarah Doublet Forest. While the work is in Acton, this work will eventually lead to being able get to Acton trails and the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail from Littleton’s Sarah Doublet Forest.

A new Acton trail is in its infancy! To be called the Nashoba Trail (NT),it will be an extension of the Trail Through Time (TTT). It will begin on the newly opened Bruce Freeman Rail Trail (BFRT), and wind through a series of town open spaces to connect with the Sarah Doublet Forest in Littleton. The NT project will be sponsored jointly by Littleton’s and Acton’s Conservation Trusts. The first section of this new trail will be a short link in Acton that connects the TTT to the BFRT.

That’s where local volunteers can help on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 1 PM. The effort will focus on clearing brush and tidying up this link which has existed informally between the stone chamber and the old railroad bed since before the NorthBriar subdivision was developed. Please RSVP to Linda McElroy at 978-429-8000 or Bob Ferrara at rferrara@mit.edu or 978-263-8642. Also you are welcome to join the group for lunch beforehand at 11:30 at Legends Café (5 A Spruce St) in West Acton. Meet the other folks working on this trail project.

Please note that due to Acton regulations, Littleton volunteers can help with the work but cannot operate chainsaws unless they’ve been through Acton’s training program and have the specified safety equipment.
