Volunteer on the Trails!

Join Simon’s Rock students and Greenagers this Saturday, September 29th, for a day of work on local trails. This is part of Rock the Community, an opportunity for Simon’s Rock students to give back to the community.  We’ll be working on trails for four local organizations: River Walk, Lake Mansfield (GBLC), Sheffield Land Trust, and the Appalachian Mountain Club. The day will be broken into two sessions: River Walk and Lake Mansfield from 9-12 and Sheffield Land Trust and AMC from 1-4.

RSVP to Greenagers if you wish to join in the fun and good work. 644-9090 / email hidden; JavaScript is required.

Volunteer on the River Walk

Projects to include coir log installation and erosion control – a very important day of work to be done! Saturday, November 3rd, from 9:30 to 3:30. Meet at the Dubois River Garden at the intersection of River and Church Streets in Great Barrington.

All community members and visitors are welcome!

Volunteer Days: New Schedule

Greenagers will be hosting regular volunteer days on trails, farms, and conservation lands on the third Saturday of every month. We will post specific details about each day on the website as the day approaches. All Volunteer Days are open to all community members (and visitors) and will be hosted by Mike Leavitt, our much-loved Americorps member. Volunteer Days are a great way to simultaneously serve and enjoy the community in which we live, work, and recreate.
We will also host additional volunteer day in-between the regularly scheduled ones and will announce these on the website and via email as well.
