First Saturday Fun in East Haven!

October First Saturday Walk in East Haven

Twenty-five participants met on a warm October day at SGT trailhead in East Haven for an interpretive walk. Interpretive trail brochures produced by Joe Capozzo of Boy Scout Troop 401 were circulated. Mike Gambardella and Kirsten Dudley led the morning walk, pointing out natural sights highlighted in the brochure. We even ran into a baby snake, not mentioned in the handout! The group had many friendly new faces as well as familiar ones. Thank you all who joined us.

Volunteers Wanted!

Trail Maintenance Volunteers Wanted:

East Haven SGT town team is in need of volunteers to help maintain our trail. We meet about 6 times a year for trail cleanup. Typically this involves trash clean up, raking, leaf blowing and weeding. The ideal candidate knows his way around a pair of clippers!

Although we understand that everyone’s time is important to them we hope you will consider volunteering with us. We meet for about 2 hours on a mix of weekend mornings and weekday evenings. If you are interested please reach out to East Haven SGT Chairwoman Barbara Brow. Looking forward to working with you to keep up our wonderful trail!

This is also a great opportunity for high school aged kids to earn community service hours!

Thank you very much!
