Shoreline Greenway Trail is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to building a 25-mile continuous path for bicyclists, walkers and hikers on the Connecticut Shoreline from Lighthouse Point in New Haven through East Haven, Branford, and Guilford to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison.
Our Guilford SGT Team made a big splash at Guilford’s 375th anniversary Parade! Twenty of us all in our SGT ‘Green Team’ t-shirts, marching, biking and riding for Shoreline Greenway Trail.
five bicyclists riding in circles, followed by a family with four girls in their brand new jeep festooned with SGT signs and posters.
We passed out bumper stickers and bike safety bookmarks (some had a piece of candy attached, thanks to the Levine girls!) And a highlight was walker Joan Hickey’s creative “Nature on the Trail’ outfit with a huge spider attached to her SGT t-shirt and a picture hat covered with leaves – Channel 8 featured her that night!

Shoreline Greenway Trail and our partner Friends of Hammonasset sponsored the first of a series of horticultural workshops on Saturday, September 20.
The workshop, led by Barbara Yaeger, landscape architect and horticulturist, and Michael Gaines, licensed arborist, focused on how to plant trees. To demonstrate, Barbara donated two trees that they planted in the rain garden at the Eastern Trailhead parking lot. They also inspected, and in some cases corrected, the planting of the eight trees that were part of the original parking lot construction. Those in attendance thought they knew how to plant trees but still learned a great deal. A big thank you to Barbara and Mike!
