Dates Announced for 2017 AMC-Bay Circuit Trail Saturday Work Party Series


Come join us for a Saturday Work Party on the Bay Circuit Trail!

Get out, give back, get dirty…and celebrate the Bay Circuit Trail!

Why Volunteer at a Weekend Work Party? 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? Interested in exploring natural “gems” of the greater Boston area?

These one-day trail events offer the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of trail maintenance or building from skilled AMC Trail Crew Leaders right in Boston’s backyard. Bay Circuit Trail Saturday Work Parties take place between April and November at various eastern-Massachusetts locations along the trail. Locations updated 2-3 months prior to event. Consider coming out for an event close to your home, or use this as a reason to get to know new natural places.

They are free and no experience is necessary! Individuals, small groups and families with youth age 12+ welcome. RSVP required, as spaces are limited. Visit the AMC outdoor trip listings for more information.
