Roger Davis reports:

On Sunday, the Cape Ann Trails Stewards organized a cleanup along the trails around and above the Goose Cove Reservoir.  A number of people worked at cleaning up the service road around the reservoir (including at least a couple of dads with young sons).  Patti Amaral reported collecting several bags of trash around the parking area at the entrance to Dogtown.  These photos show the cleanup at an apparent party spot near the city’s compost area in Dogtown.  A group of  a dozen volunteers collected a dozen bags full of empty cans, bottles and litter.  This area borders a sensitive vernal wetland, so it was good to see it cleaned up.  It was good to see so many people stepping up to return our woodlands to its beautiful natural state.
Kudos to volunteers. Kudos for Cape Ann Trails Stewards.  Keep your eyes open for future activities of this newly organized volunteer group.

CAPE ANN TRAIL STEWARDS

Inaugural Event

Cape Ann Trail Stewards (CATs), a new non-profit organization, announces its upcoming inaugural event. 

Cape Ann Trail Stewards was founded by citizens of Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester and Essex to help landowners and conservation organizations protect, maintain and expand Cape Ann’s trail networks.

By matching volunteers with trails in need of stewardship, CATs will connect Cape Ann residents with the vast network of trails in the area and help preserve these recreational resources for our community. Cape Ann Trail Stewards will arrange workdays where volunteers can learn about trail construction and maintenance.

The board of directors includes residents of Gloucester, Rockport, Essex and Manchester, and representatives from the Essex County Greenbelt, Essex County Trails Association, Cape Ann Climbing Coalition, the New England Mountain Bike Association and other user groups.

Cape Ann Trail Stewards invites the public to join the inaugural clean up workday at the city of Gloucester’s Goose Cove Reservoir on Sunday, April 21st (the day before Earth Day) beginning at 1PM. 

We will meet in the lot along Gee Avenue. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather (the event is rain or shine). Bring rakes, shovels and buckets if you have them. CATs will supply gloves and other materials.

Register for this event, join our roster of regular volunteers and learn more about us at www.capeanntrailstewards.org
