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!

East Haven Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The ribbon cutting ceremony and walk on May 11th to celebrate the opening of the newly constructed Shoreline Greenway Trail in the beautiful Farm River State Park was a great success! We could not have asked for better weather, or a nicer group of people!

The ceremony was kicked off with a welcome speech by East Haven, SGT Chairwoman Barbara Brow, and comments from East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr., and Laurie Giannotti, coordinator of DEEP trails and greenways program. Construction of the trail was funded by a recreation trail grant from DEEP and designed and built by Timber and Stone LLC.

The trail connects users to nature and is safe for walking and biking. It connects by way of Pevetty Drive to the built Shoreline Greenway Trail at the D.C. Moore School property. We invite East Haven residents and members of our surrounding towns and communities to enjoy this new multi-use trail. Thanks to all participants who supported the event and made it a memorable morning.
