June 2017 - First annual Family Day on the Rail Trail

Thanks to the over 65 participants (many in strollers!) who had a great time at the Family Day on the Squannacook River Rail Trail! And thanks to everyone who worked to make it special, including the Townsend Police Department, Nashoba Paddlers, Groton Turtle Conservation, and Rock and Roll Gymnastics. We all can't wait to hold this event on a stone dust trail instead of a walking path!

Over 60 people enjoy a guided walk along the Squannacook River Rail Trail - Nov 2016

On Nov 5, 2016, Squannacook Greenways, in conjuction with Freedom's Way National Heritage Area and the Townsend Historical Society, held a guided one way walk of the Squannacook River Rail Trail. We were thrilled when over 60 people turned up to enjoy the walk. Thanks to everyone who attended, and thanks to the Townsend Historical Society for offering walkers a tour of the Reed Homestead.
