Celebrating Earth Day, Pawtuxet Market Opening Soon

From Steve Stycos:

The Friends of the Pawtuxet River and the West Bay Land Trust will be holding a trail and riverbank clean-up at the former DEM depot at 230 Warwick Ave, (on the Cranston side of the river across from Stop and Shop). The date is this Saturday 4/26 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon. Bring clippers, rakes, gloves or just yourself, for an hour or as long as you can spare. Help keep our riverbank and trail clear and trash-free.

We will also be planting 3 trees (2 sugar maples and a red maple) in the area now abandoned as vehicle storage by DEM. These trees will contribute to the re-naturalization of this portion of the trail and riverbank.

These are family-friendly activities open to folks of all ages and abilities. The trail is maintained by the Friends of the Pawtuxet River, an all-volunteer organization that has advocated for passive recreational use and restoration of the riparian habitat of the river for over 20 years. Maintaining and protecting this valuable natural area in our own backyard is the only way to preserve it for our own enjoyment and that of future generations.

The Pawtuxet Village Farmer’s Market opens our 12th season on Saturday May 10, the day before Mother’s Day. Come welcome back our farmers and vendors and get some good food and plants.

See you at the market, and the clean-up.
