Lexington Conservation Stewards
The Lexington Conservation Stewards are a group of volunteers formed under the joint sponsorship of the Lexington Conservation Commission and Citizens for Lexington Conservation to help protect conservation lands in Lexington.
This is your chance to take part in Lexington’s popular trail-building program, sponsored by the Conservation Stewards and the Bicycle Advisory Committee. A Mass Highway grant supplies funds for the materials, as long as Lexington supplies the volunteer labor. Last year over 800’ of boardwalk were constructed, using nearly 600 hours of volunteer labor. Plans for this year are to construct well over twice that amount.
These boardwalks allow children to walk to school without using busy streets, provide hikers with earlier spring access to walking trails, and protect trails in fragile wetlands from damage caused by heavy use.
No particular skills are needed to participate. All tools and training are provided. Best of all, this is an great way to get out and enjoy the company of others from the community while engaged in a worthwhile effort to make our wonderful conservation lands more accessible to all.
Many new volunteer opportunities will be available in the Spring.
Thank you for your help!
