If you haven’t had a chance to see the community room at the restored Fire Alarm Building, this is a wonderful opportunity. See you there!
If you are interested in attending we encourage you to park on Cataract Street by the bridge and hike down 0.05mi, or to park on Soheili Circle off of Olean Street, as the Olean Street parking at the trailhead fills up really fast.
Our intrepid Executive Director, Colin Novick, installs the new Roosevelt Oak sign with the help of Gordon Larrivee, Ron Sabulis, Greg Doerschler & Paula Arsenault.
Today at 4:02 PM EDT, the season officially changes and our thoughts turn to long hikes that end with steaming mugs of mulled cider. While the Worcester area is still a week or two from peak foliage, it pays to plan ahead. We have prominent stands of maples at Nick’s Woods, Cascade West & Southwick Pond. Happy leaf-peeping!
From WBUR, an article by Steve LeBlanc of The Associated Press that shows how imperative it is to preserve open space :
New England Is Losing 65 Acres Of Forestland Per Day, Report Finds

Thanks to everyone who made this year’s StART a success (and a good time as well!) Maps were handed out, cookies were eaten, logs were hewn, and a crew of staff and volunteers came out to represent GWLT. Many thanks to Paula Arsenault, Mike Benedetti, Bill Caulway, Mary Bayer Caulway, Stephen L Crowe, Greg Doerschler, Daniel Donahue , Victor Infante, Michael Lanava, Gordon Larrivee, Jackie Lynn, Tracy O’Connell Novick, dozens of kids wielding a beech mallet, and the GWLT Junior Rangers! (and anyone we’ve missed!) Your generous hard work is truly awesome.
If you’d like to see one of our signs in action, we’ll be installing the Roosevelt Oak sign shown below today at 5:00PM!
