Two Celery Farm Events

Saturday, June 2 — Nature Walk at the Celery Fa

    This walk is for nature-lovers and birders of all levels. We'll look for birds, butterflies, bugs and other cool stuff.  Free and open to the public. Meet at 8 a.m. at Green Way cul de sac. Wear long pants and socks; bring water and bug spray! Leader: Mike Limatola. Register for this walk by e-mail to [email protected]

Saturday, June 16 — Celery Farm Cleanup

   Meet at the end of Green Way at 9 a.m. for a couple of hours of active conservation.  We'll do trail work as needed, and pull and bag invasive garlic mustard.  Many hands make light work! Bring your own work gloves. Jim Wright is the coordinator. Please let him know if you can participate at [email protected].   Rain date is June 17.   (The next work detail will be in the fall.)

Thank You, Brookside Volunteers!

Last Thursday, four Brookside eight-graders went to work lugging wood chips from the Franklin Turnpike parking lot to the muddy Black Rail Trail.

It was hot and humid, the wood chips were wet and heavy, the young men of the Group 31 Service Learning Project did a great job.

Mike Buckley manned the rake. The trail is a lot less soggy thanks to their efforts!

 The crew from left to right is: Lucas S., Yanni Z. Lucas G. Derek M. and Mike B.
