Leverett Trails Committee — East Leverett Trails Project
In the fall of 2010, the Leverett Conservation Commission and the Rattlesnake Gutter Trust worked together to prepare a funding proposal to the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).
Our proposal (which was funded!) was to establish a Trails Committee for the entire town and to focus most of our efforts on developing a network of trails in East Leverett. Funding would be used for bridges linking the western trails (4-H to Teawaddle Hill Road) and the eastern trails (Woodard’s Corner to the East Leverett Meadow and Cushman Road).
We began in the summer by organizing the Leverett Trails Committee which has:
- met regularly to plan trail work and events;
- designed/created trails in the northern half of the East Leverett Trails
- organized many events including a photo contest and poetry workshops to encourage the use of the new trails
