SHELTON — City Trails Committee volunteers will be clearing weeds from the Paugussett Trail that’s near Mayflower Drive on Saturday.

A work party will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the lower parking lot at the very bottom of the hill at Sinsabaugh Heights off Meadow Street. (For a map, see the Shelton Trails blog.)

Bring sturdy work gloves and wear footwear that can stand up to some mud. There will be tools available, but people can bring their own loppers and brush cutters.

Work parties generally last between two and three hours and can count towards community service requirements.

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.
