Ten Mile Shelter Upper Field and North Stanley Tract Mowing - Open Space Preservation

Date and Time

Meet 9am at the hiker parking area on Rte. 55 in Sherman CT, about 50 yards east of the NY line.,
Connecticut, West of River,


Registration is required for this activity.


Come out and volunteer to maintain open space habitat on National Park Appalachian Trail corridor land. This work party is focused on the field mowing required to preserve and maintain the open spaces that are an important part of the AT experience and critical habitat for unique flora & fauna. We will use our DR mowers (you'll learn all about them) to mow the upper field at Ten Mile River shelter, small field on the North Stanley tract, and do general brushing as required. We'll teach you how to use the mowers and other cutting tools. There is a combination of light and heavy work, so you can choose what you are most comfortable with. Bring plenty of water, lunch and work gloves. Also, bring a mask to wear as we gather in a group and personal hand sanitizer.
