On November 2nd, Friends of the Kayaderossearas volunteers met at Kelley Park, divided into groups and picked up trash and tires at multiple sites along the banks of the creek. The cleanup was a success, as many items of garbage were removed. A significant portion of the cleanup items were also recycled.
On Saturday, October 15, 2019, volunteers with the Friends of the Kayaderosseras replaced fence posts and rails at the Cottrell-Harrington Park in Rock City Falls. The fence and railings in the gazebo now look beautiful!
Friends of the Kayaderosseras hosted the second annual Pedal the Creek bike ride on Saturday, September 7, 2019. Participants rode from the Brookhaven Park Pavilion, alongside the upper portions of the creek, and through Greenfield, Milton, Porter Corners, and Rock City Falls. 14, 30 and 50 mile rides were hosted. Lunch was provided after the ride.
Thank you to our sponsors that made this event possible: T-Shirt Graphics, Stewart’s Shops, My Other Garden, and Hannaford. And a big thanks to the Town of Greenfield for all of their support and for hosting our event.
Trail Work at Grays Crossing
Thanks to all the volunteers (including the group from Troop 4011 Saratoga) who came out to help with trail work at Kelley Park and at Driscoll Road Landing.
We planted 21 trees (balsam fir, eastern redbud, and one sugar maple) at Kelley Park and improved the trail at Driscoll Road by filling in the low areas with wood chips. Also a thank you to trail stewards Ron Leveille and Mike Tower for organizing and leading the work!
Along with pulling trash and tires the adventurous group found a large blockage and cleared it with hand tools and muscles. The creek was completely blocked and difficult to portage around due to large branches. now the path is clear for safe paddling.
