Shoreline Greenway Trail to Participate in Yale Day of Service

Shoreline Greenway Trail supporters are invited to pitch in as we take part in Yale Day of Service on Saturday, May 7. Participants in this community-service initiative will be working on the Tabor section of Shoreline Greenway Trail in Branford, helping to keep a temporary pedestrian trail clear and usable for school groups, walkers and hikers while we await completion of design and construction of a finished pedestrian/bicycle trail that will travel past beautiful Chet’s Pond.

This is a great opportunity to get some healthy exercise in a natural environment while contributing to construction of an important community asset. Members of the Yale community—students, faculty, administrators, alumni and friends—will help with trail clearing, including brush cutting and minor tree trimming. Some tools will be available, but please bring loppers and pruners if you have them. Wear sturdy shoes, and dress comfortably for outdoor work. Meet near the Shoreline Pet Lodge at 157 Pine Orchard Road; park at the west end of the side road.

Last year, more than 4,000 members of the extended Yale community in 38 U.S. states and 18 countries worked on various community projects, and we’re excited to be part of this global celebration of service this year.
