FVTC Schedules Annual Spring Trail Clean-Up 4-7-13Date: 4/7/2013
Time: 9:00:00 AM
The Farmington Valley Trails Council will hold its 4th annual Trail-wide Clean-Up Day on Sunday, April 7th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. (The rain date is Sunday, April 14th). The 2012 Clean-Up Day drew nearly 175 volunteers last year at four staging areas across the eight towns in the Farmington Valley that encompass the northern part of the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail. The trail now has 22.4 continuously paved miles from Farmington to Southwick, MA. Volunteers will also clean up the Farmington River Trail, which has almost 10.2 miles of paved trail.
FVTC President R. Bruce Donald noted: “Last year, we expanded the trail cleanup to cover the newly completed trail section in Canton. The community continues to support and use the Farmington Valley trails. Our volunteers worked hard to clear 12 cubic yards of trash and prepare the trails for use by bike riders, walkers, runners and the public at large."
Volunteers will cover a specific 1-mile stretch of the trail from one of four staging areas: The Brickyard Trail Shelter on Brickyard Road in Farmington; Iron Horse Blvd. in Simsbury; the River Trail Pavilion at RT 4 in Unionville and Copper Hill Road in Granby. Based on last year’s feedback, we are asking volunteers to bring brooms, rakes and clippers. Please join us after the clean-up for a volunteer barbeque at Flaming Farm from 1:00pm - 3:00pm.
