Clear and Clean: The Woodland Trail at Boscobel

Saturday, April 22
9:30am – 12:30pm

Celebrate Earth Day with friends and family!
Spring is here and Boscobel needs your HELP. The Frances Reese Woodland Trail is an extraordinarily beautiful feature of our site. The 1-¼ mile trail leads visitors through 29 acres of forested land as it traverses a dramatic ravine leading down to Constitution Marsh. We need your help to clear and clean the trail in order to maintain, enhance, preserve and promote appreciation of this natural landscape. Won’t you lend a hand?
Bring your water bottle and work gloves, and wear sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Tools will be provided to clear overgrowth and downed branches. The event is free and open to all ages.
Please check-in at the Carriage House upon arrival.
