Thank you 2019 Big Y River Walk Volunteers!

The mission? To help support the health of the river bank by mulching a footpath adjacent to the trail. Thursday, July 18, 2019: On an extremely hot and humid afternoon three intrepid Big Y Volunteers dug in and lent a hand on the Downstream section of Housatonic River Walk. They worked with River Walk director Christine Ward and River Walk Intern Olivia Conforti. A community volunteer was also inspired to join in. 

YOU can be a River Walk volunteer, too! Just contact: to set up a date for you or your group.
