Follow-up Work Party
Saturday, April 17
Join volunteers on the old bridge access road between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.
(Rain date Saturday, April 24th)

Come help detangle the wooded lot next to the old bridge abutment off Halls Road. Bring gloves, clippers, loppers, rakes, and hand-saws and be ready to do some bush-whacking.

Wear your protective clothing, & use tick repellant, it’s a jungle in there!

In the fall of 2018, the Halls Road Improvements Committee began the work to remove trash and untangle the wooded lot leading to the old bridge abutment on the Lieutenant River. It’s time to finish the project near the river and collect up any litter in the lot.

This is a fun way to get to know your neighbors and contribute to the efforts of Halls Road improvements.

Work in small socially-distanced groups, with masks on, to pull all the dead wood, trash, and invasive plants out to the access road.

Later, Old Lyme Public Works crew will dispose of the piles and do any final chain-sawing needed.
