Sandwich Conservation Trust Work Party

The Trustees of The Sandwich Conservation Trust are planning to conduct a Spring Work Party to tidy up and improve at least two of our conservation sites and some of their walking trails on Saturday, April 22, 2017, beginning at 9 a.m.   We need volunteer help.  We will meet at entrance to Elinor’s Woods, 49 Ploughed Neck Road, East Sandwich.

Most of the work consists of cutting back grass and brambles overgrowing the trail’s edges.  It’s basically woodland management and path work. The ground is damp and uneven in places.  Working out in the elements requires the right apparel. Long pants and sturdy shoes, that can afford to get muddy, are necessary. Tick prevention is also necessary.

Unfortunately the Trust does not have any of the necessary tools for this project and we are asking, if you can volunteer, to also please bring your own tools.  We suggest hand equipment such as gloves, pruning shears, pruning saws and loppers.  

Bring a full water bottle.  We will have water jugs on hand for refills.

Please contact joe.queenan@comcast.net for additional information.
