Support Community Trails for Challenging Times This #GivingTuesday

We have a present for you this holiday season! We have opened new outdoor spaces that will provide a respite from long winter hours indoors. We have completed two sections of the new Riverfront Trail-- accessible walking paths that can be enjoyed year-round-- bringing us even closer to reaching our dream of building an interconnected town-wide trail system just steps from downtown Great Barrington.

Eagle Scouts Rebuild Wattle Fence at River Walk

During your River Walk meander you may happen across a new wattle fence on the upstream section. Built of aspen, cherry, and sumac this fence was the culmination of an Eagle Scout project which began back in July. The Boyscout that became an Eagle Scout was a youth named Dan from a Troop in Lee, MA. To accomplish the project he had to source materials, recruit his friends and fellow scouts, and organize the project's development.
