Bay Circuit Trail Volunteer Weekend Work Parties
Get out, get dirty, give back…and get to know the Bay Circuit Trail! Ever wonder what goes into maintaining a trail? Looking for a way to give something back to the local trails you already use? Perhaps you are looking for a way to enjoy the outdoors, learn new skills, and meet like-minded people? We invite you to take part in free work parties on the Bay Circuit, a 240+mile route that stretches from shore to shore around Boston and offers diverse opportunities to explore open space throughout the region. These one-day trail events offer the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of trail maintenance or building from skilled AMC Trail Crew Leaders. When you join an AMC trail project you can expect to meet intriguing people, experience the beauty and wonders of nature, put in a hard day’s work, experience great leadership, and “do something for the greater good.” Saturday work parties will take place monthly between April and November at various Massachusetts locations along the trail. Consider coming out for an event close to your home, or use this as a reason to get to know new locales. A typical work party starts at 9am and runs until about 4pm. Participants need to bring their own lunch, water, snacks, long pants (no matter how hot it is!), sturdy hiking boots, and other clothing appropriate for the weather. The AMC Trail Crew Leaders will provide all personal protective equipment, trail tools, and instruction and supervision. Workshops are suitable for individuals, small groups and families with children 12 years and older. Programs will run rain or shine.
