Volunteer to Clean Up the Trail

Two fall cleanups along the Northern Strand Trail are scheduled in October.

The first one is on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Called the "Saugus Bike Trail Birch Grove Cleanup," volunteers are needed to trim trees and plant trees, flowers and spring bulbs near the Denver Street crossing.

The next one is being held on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to noon in Saugus near the Lynn line. Volunteers should meet behind O'Briens on Lincoln Street and bring work gloves. It's also recommended to wear long pants and boots or high-top sneakers. The cleanup will focus on the Saugus River section of the Northern Strand Trail.
