CANCELLED!!! May 12 – Mother’s Day clean-up

May 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

Sadly the weather does not look cooperative, and as such we are CANCELLING our May 12 Mother's Day clean-up of Mill Brook.   We don't do this lightly. Forecast says solid rain from 9-2, some of which may be pretty heavy. While cleaning up in the rain is fun, it is not necessarily safe (especially in high water and fast-moving streams). And picnicking in the rain is a bit of a bummer.   HUGE THANKS to all the amazing groups…
