Weather (w/ remote chance of T-Storm) & National Trails Day Approaching!


National Trails Day is the 1st Sat. of June! And that is RIGHT around the corner!
This year the land trusts and conservation groups of Worcester County are focusing on the MidState Trail!
The MidState Trail runs from Rhode Island to New Hampshire, and connects to long distance trails in both states!
To hike a portion of the trail, to learn more, or to get some free food and listen to some live music come join us!

Ted is now in Pennsylvania and is headed northward!
That is a LONG hike from Georgia! Over 1000 miles!


Yesterday, Memorial Day, was the Anniversary of the preservation of the Southwick Brook property in Leicester, MA off of Marshall Street!
This 4.61 acre property is on the southern shore of the southernmost Southwick Pond and is the only way for Leicesterites to reach Southwick Pond (which is IN Leicester) from Leicester! Otherwise they need to drive into Paxton to get to a pond in their own town!
