The 2019 Spring Cleanup Crew cleaned the Grove Street to Prospect Street section of the eastern portion of the SNETT. Multiple plastic bags of trash were collected by this year’s spring cleanup crew.

Summer views

So it is dog days of summer time of the year. Most people head out toward water, but the trails have their beauty in the summer too. Please enjoy some of the views that can be found along the SNETT trail. Photos were taken between the Center Street (Bellingham, MA) and Prospect Street (Franklin, MA). See you on the trail!

Walk before the heat

Thank you to all who have joined us today for our dog/group walk. We walked from the Grove Street to Prospect Street in Franklin and back. On our 2.6 mile walk we have enjoyed the shade of the trail, saw beautiful nature, walked by Wadsworth Farm on Spring Street (you can read more about the history at the kiosk nearby or on our website), where you can purchase beautiful flower pots, fresh blueberries and enjoy the views of fields and meadows. We have met other dog walkers and runners who were out early to beat the heat. Our volunteer members also cleaned up the parking lot area and trail entrance area before walk – thank you!

Please keep en eye out on our event page here or on Facebook for the future walk and event announcements. See you on the trail!

Before walk – the dogs were not feeling like posing for the paparazzi.
If you have not been yet, check out the Wadsworth Farm on Spring Street in Franklin.

Don’t be a litterbug!
