National Trails Day - A success!

National Trails Day at Beaver Brook was on June 1st and was a great success! Thank you to the community members who gathered to clear a good portion of one of our premier trails, the Jeff Smith Trail. Did you know that this trail was created in honor of one of our founders Jeff Smith? The goal was to create the longest possible trail touching as many parcels of land across the different conversation organizations that Jeff was a part of.
