After the snows of winter, we look forward to clearing away the fallen branches and debris from the trails simply by dragging them 10 feet to the side (minding the vegetation underfoot), where they will eventually decay. Both the Harvard Conservation Trust and the Harvard Conservation Commission are asking for walkers/hikers/trail enthusiasts to volunteer two hours on May 2, on any trail of your choice, helping to bring the trails back to their normal condition. Please leave the large trees and precarious debris to the chain saw crews who will follow, but please report those to Phil Knoettner at 978-456-8477 or pknoettner@aol.com, so he can coordinate. We encourage your safety by being aware of what’s around and above you and thank you so much for your time in this community effort.

Send any photos, the names of participants in your work party, and the trail you cleared to Marylynn Gentry, executive director, at mgentry@harvardconservationtrust.org. We would like to recognize your efforts!
