Community Volunteer Opportunity – Stewardship Week

Monday, August 10 through Saturday, August 15.

Each year,  the Phippsburg land Trust reaches out to the community for assistance with major trail improvement projects during Stewardship Week. The 21 miles of beautiful trail maintained by the Phippsburg Land Trust are in need of refreshed paint blazing, new bog bridging, clipping, clearing, and the installation of signs. These improvements will help make the trails more pleasant to walk and easier to navigate.  We hope you can join us and lend your hands, feet and time to making these preserves the best they can be!
