SHELTON — The Trails Committee is holding a work party on the Paugusset Trail at Sinsabaugh Heights on Saturday.

The Paugussett Trail from Mayflower Drive to Indian Well always gets overgrown quickly, and it did not get much attention this year, according to the committee. Volunteers are needed to work on clearing that area.

Those interested in volunteering are asked to meet at 9 a.m. at the lower parking lot at Sinsabaugh Heights off Meadow Street.

Sturdy shoes and work gloves are recommended. There will be a variety of work tools available, but volunteers can bring their own clippers, loppers and brushcutters.

If the weather looks questionable, check the Shelton Trails blog for updates. For more information, contact Val Gosset at valgosset@aol.com or 203-803-5247.
