Trail-building supervisors needed for Boulevard Woods

We need volunteer help to build trails at Boulevard Woods. As a first step, what we need is a corps of folks willing to be trained in how to clear a trail corridor and to serve on a rotating basis over the coming weeks to supervise other volunteers in trail corridor work. If you’re willing and able to serve as a supervisor, please RSVP to lorentz.d@gmail.com and join us this Saturday, June 18, from 10 am to 12 noon at Boulevard Woods Park (298 Barber St.) for a training session.

Fully installed: bike repair station with air pump and tools

With the recent installation of sod, Boulevard Woods now has a beautiful green lawn. There’s still more work to be done (of course!), but this construction site is suddenly looking like a park—and a nice one at that.
