Friday, September 20, 2013

GROTON, Mass. – The public is invited to join the Nashua River Watershed Association’s free guided hike on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 2-3:30 p.m., along the Nashua River in Groton, Mass.

The hike will pass through two Groton Conservation Trust properties, Lawrence Woods and Taisey, and a town Conservation Commission tract, Farmers and Mechanics, to the newly installed Fitch’s Bridge, a non-motorized bridge connecting trails on both sides of the river.

The guides for this hike will be NRWA’s Land Programs Director, Al Futterman, and Paul Funch, of the Groton Trails Committee.

The hike will last 45 minutes in each direction for a total of an hour and a half. It is free and open to the public.

For the comfort of all, no dogs are allowed.

The meeting place for the hike will be the parking area at Groton Place on Long Hill Road (Route 225) in Groton; a Google map and directions can be found on NRWA’s website at www.NashuaRiverWatershed.org.

Pre-registration is appreciated for planning purposes. To preregister or for more information, contact Al at 978-448-0299 or email AlF@NashuaRiverWatershed.org.
