The Roxbury Conservation Commission needs volunteers to work on June 4, 2016. We are building Joey’s Trail, a 1/3 mile loop trail connecting the Roxbury Senior Center, Booth Free School, and Minor Memorial Library. Designed as a memorial for 11-year-old Joey Awlasewicz, a Roxbury resident and former Booth Free School student, the trail will serve students, seniors, and residents. Volunteers will gather at 8:30 AM on June 4 in the back parking lot of Minor Memorial Library, 23 South Street, Roxbury. Volunteers on June 4 will work to clear brush and undergrowth along the planned trail route. Additional work days will be scheduled to construct 150 feet of boardwalk. The trail loop will pass over open fields and through woodlands and wetlands. We ask volunteers to arrive ready and able to work with proper clothing, gloves, and footwear. If you have them, please bring brush clearing tools, shovels, wheel barrows, and rakes. Refreshments will be served.
