SHELTON - The Shelton Trails Committee will be holding a work party on the Stockmal Trail Saturday.

Volunteers are needed to help clean out overgrowth and get both Stockmal and Willis Woods trails back in shape, according to committee member Val Gosset.

Those wishing to volunteer can arrive at 8:30 a.m. People can park at the main lot for Nicholdale Farm located west of the house at 332 Leavenworth Road. The entrance dips down to the parking lot and is easy to miss, so approach slowly. The area is located between a telephone pole and the beginning of a long guardrail.

Work parties generally last two hours. The work also counts towards community service hours.

Volunteers are asked to dress for the weather and bring work gloves and water. The committee members have clippers, loppers brush cutters and other tools, but people can bring their own.

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