CANCELLED: Trail Day and Cleanup at the Wildlife Sanctuary

thumb_DSC00783_1024***Due to the bad weather today (5/6/17) this work day has been cancelled. We will let you know when we reschedule. Thank you for your patience and enjoy the weekend!***

Help us celebrate spring this year by giving your time and talent to a trail workday and cleanup at the Joseph A. Blake Wildlife Sanctuary in Rutland. Join Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust (THTLT) on Saturday, May 6th from 10am-2pm as we prepare the wildlife sanctuary for summer visitors. Plan to meet in the sanctuary parking lot that is adjacent to 31270 Middle Road in Rutland.

We’ll be clearing the trails of winter debris, picking up litter, and making sure everything is in good condition. Open year-round to the public for hiking, biking, snowshoeing and XC skiing, the Joseph A. Blake Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place to visit with kids. The sanctuary is forever conserved by THTLT, and free public programs are offered year-round for everyone to explore and learn about nature.

Families and children are encouraged to attend! Please wear sturdy boots and comfortable work clothes. Pack a brown bag lunch, extra water, sunscreen, bug dope, and bee sting kit if appropriate. Bring your favorite loppers and gloves. THTLT will provide extra tools and gloves for volunteers.

All skill levels are welcome – we have a lot of work! Trash bags, gloves, water, and snacks will be provided by THTLT. Updates can be found on our website and Facebook page.

RSVPs are encouraged to keep track of how many people will be attending. Please RSVP by contacting Community Programs Manager Lianna Lee at 315.779.2239 or email
