The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts.

Overcast With Birds

The skies are overcast but the birds are singing away.
The Blood root is in bloom and the the Cascades are flowing.


Yesterday was a busy day for the Trust!
Our Volunteer, Nick, was our on the ground manager for a cleanup at Crow Hill.
The Worcester geocachers agreed to take on Crow Hill as a CITO event (Cache-In, Trash-Out.)
They were joined by a team from Holy Cross students as part of Holy Cross Cares Day.
They got a ton of work done!


Yesterday also saw Colin out at Wachusett Mountain with the Appalachian Mount Club Worcester Chapter taking a Griphoist Class. More or less this is the art of moving enormously heavy objects and getting rocks to fly through the air.


Ted reported in from "The Barn" restaurant and is continuing his trek up the Appalachian Mountains.
