Volunteers should meet at the South Portland Land Trust office in Mill Creek Park, 473 Broadway – a small brick building across from the library. Trail Care Day is being held to complete the maintenance projects identified by board members in a recent survey of the land trust’s trails.

Participants will be assigned tasks and given tools before heading out to begin work on the trails.

RSVP to [email protected] if you have a particular set of skills that you think will be relevant to the work needed: bog bridge building, cutting back vegetation, replacing wooden steps, or moving a foot bridge into place.

The trails included in the event are the Long Creek Trail, the Clarks Pond Trail, the South Branch Trail and the Mt. Vernon Street Trail.
