DCR’s Park Serve Day

April 25, 2015 - 10:00 am - 12:00 pm at

Join us at the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) Annual Park Serve Day event on  Saturday, April 25 between 10 am and noon as staff and volunteers plant native low-bush blueberries on DCR’s Norwottuck Rail Trail at the eastern end of the Route 9 tunnel in Hadley.  Volunteers and staff will meet behind the Mountain Farms Mall at the trail entrance between 9:45 and 10 am. DCR will provide water and gloves for all volunteers.

The Norwottuck Branch of the Mass Central Rail Trail is part of DCR’s Connecticut River Greenway State Park and one of several paved rail trails within the Massachusetts State Parks and Recreation System. It follows the former Mass Central Railroad right of way for over ten miles through the towns of Northampton, Hadley, Amherst, and Belchertown. The trail’s gentle grade and smooth surface create perfect conditions for cyclists, skaters, walkers, runners and cross-country skiers of all ages and abilities.

Since its development as a recreational trail in 1993, the Norwottuck Rail Trail has become a valued resource for recreational users and commuters alike. With connectors to UMass, Amherst College, and a variety of local businesses, the trail links area communities while avoiding many dangerous traffic situations. After 20 years of use, trail reconstruction and upgrading began in 2013, and is scheduled for completion during the spring of 2015. This work includes widening of the trail, addition of rest stops, and addition of a new bicycle repair station. Along with the upgrades comes a name reflecting the trail’s origins: Mass Central Rail Trail—Norwottuck. The Park Serve Day project will complement the new trail improvements by providing food for local fauna and stabilizing the bank without disturbing sight lines.

Further information can be found at or by calling Connecticut River Greenway at (413)586-8706 extension 15.
