Volunteer opportunity:

Hallenbeck land

The winter storm cleanup continues! Help cut and stack brush on the Hallenbeck Land off of Lowell Road. Park and meet at 10am on Indian Spring Road. Wear sturdy shoes and bring work gloves. If you have loppers or a handsaw you can bring, that would be great.
