Immediate Need!

We need four strong people to volunteer to help repair some trail bridges on the trail to Abbott Pond near Sumner, Maine on Thursday, May 12, 2016. Abbott Pond is one of our 5 in 5 Pond Reclamation Project ponds, which was restocked in 2014 and should be chock full of nice brookies! The route to the pond is unsafe as it is. A professional contractor will be supervising the project, so it should be well-planned, and all we have to do is show up and provide the muscle. It will be a full-day's work, and will involve cutting, lifting, moving, drilling and nailing planks in place on the bridges. Lunch will be provided. Contact Matt Streeter to volunteer.
