Town Asks Residents To Pick Up Trash At Town Parks, Public Open Spaces & Trails, Looking For Volunteer Land Stewards

Below is a press release from the Town Manager’s Office:

WILMINGTON, MA — Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Wilmington Conservation Commission and the Department of Planning & Conservation is asking residents to volunteer to do individual town clean-up efforts during the months of September and October in their neighborhoods.  Specifically, volunteers are encouraged to walk neighborhood trails and visit town parks and public open space to remove trash and litter.  Town-owned parcels and neighborhood trails can be located by using the Town’s GIS maps on the Town’s website: https://www.wilmingtonma.gov/public-works/engineering-division/pages/gis-maps. Printable trail maps for many trails can also be downloaded from the Town’s website: https://www.wilmingtonma.gov/planning-conservation/pages/town-trail-maps.

As you are visiting the town’s open spaces this fall, please remember to be safe. Rules and safety recommendations for conservation land can be found in the Town of Wilmington Conservation Land Stewardship Program Handbook here: https://www.wilmingtonma.gov/sites/g/files/vyhlif5221/f/uploads/land_stewardship_handbook_spring_2019_final_print.pdf.

If you are interested in conducting regular maintenance as a land steward or have any questions about clean-up activities please contact the Department of Planning & Conservation at 978-658-8238.
