Cormier Day - Cormier Woods

Charles River Valley

Opportunity Overview
Join us on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a Volunteer Work Day at Cormier Woods Reservation in Uxbridge and Mendon.  This historic and beautiful 185-acre property was donated to The Trustees by D. James Cormier. It was opened to the public in the fall of 2008 and is the first Trustees property in the Blackstone Valley.  Participants will help with clean-up and brush clearing of trails and parking areas.  This annual work day will help us to begin spring maintenance of the trails after the long winter, however, ongoing stewardship is required year-round.  Consider joining with a local team of like-minded people as a Trail Steward for Cormier Woods.  
 
Cormier Woods is abutted by Meadow Brook Woods in Mendon, an 87-acre property that includes nine-acre Inman Pond, lush woods, and rushing streams. The trail local system was recently expanded with connection from Cormier Woods to the Mendon Town Forest via a newly established trailhead on Asylum Street in Mendon. http://www.mendonma.gov/town-forest-committee
