Creek Road Fence & Clean-up project

In April 2011 The Trust obtained a 0.8-acre parcel of forested habitat between W. Franklin Street and Creek Road. This area is designated as a wildlife refuge, so there are no trails, but there are plans for a bench and quiet sitting area on the border.

On June 26th 2017 AmeriCorps Cape Cod volunteers assisted our Trustees in the installation of 250 feet of split rail fence to demarcate the area and its approach. Materials for the project were discounted and delivered free of charge by Owner Jeff Rogers and Andy Fingado, General Manager of Conwell Lumber.

AmeriCorps Cape Cod volunteers remove a time capsule, the rusted remains of an entire 1930's era Coupe and an antique bicycle along with tires and other trash. They are continuing to help us access the rest of the wildlife habitat to make sure it hasn't been contaminated. Photograph Credit: Mark Robinson
