Volunteers complete work on Cottage Brook trail boardwalk

Volunteers and the Conservation Committee installed new boardwalk at Cottage Brook May 20, 2017.

The Planning Board approved a wetlands permit for the town to install 250 feet of 4-inch-wide boardwalk on an existing trail in the Cottage Brook open space, off of Spurwink Avenue, last fall. The walk will direct users to the trail easement and away from outlying wetland vegetation.

Volunteers included Conservation Committee Chair Jim Tasse and members Zack Matzkin and Mitch Wacksman; as well as New England Mountain Bike Association member Ellie Helliesen.

Help is also welcome at a second trail work event scheduled for Tuesday, May 23, at Great Pond. Volunteers should take the trail located at the end of Fenway and turn northeast, and may want to bring gloves, lopers, chain saw, hand saw, rakes and bug spray.

Trails will be closed during the work events. For more information, please contact Maureen O'Meara or 207-799-0115.
