Volunteers Needed for
Cleanup Along Bike Trail in Saugus

Saturday, May 11, 9:00 a.m. to Noon

Meet in front of All City Glass, 344 Central Street, Saugus 
 Saugus Trail


Bike to the Sea is sponsoring a community cleanup from 9:00 am to Noon tomorrow along the new multi-use trail in Saugus.  Volunteers will help clean up the Saugus portion of the trail.  Work will begin at the Central Street entrance to the trail (in front of All City Glass) and will extend up the path in both directions.  All volunteers are invited to participate.  This is a great opportunity for students looking for service credits.  Bike to the Sea will provide bags and tools.  For more information about this event, contact Bike to the Sea at 781-397-6893. 


This cleanup project will help improve the watershed as the trail in Saugus abuts portions of Shute Brook and the Saugus River.  Sturdy shoes and clothes that can get dirty are recommended. 

We hope to see you there!
