Nulhegan Basin Division, Vermont

Join us on Saturday, September 26th for a National Public Lands Day project. One of the major bridges into the Nulhegan Basin Division of the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge will be re-decked with hemlock planks for the 2020 National Public Lands Day. The 55-foot bridge on Four Mile Road, over the North Branch of the Nulhegan River, serves as a major access point into the 45 square mile wildlife refuge for all types of outdoor recreation opportunities.

Volunteers will meet at the American Legion, 60 Railroad Street, Island Pond, VT at 9 a.m. for a briefing and then we’ll travel to the bridge project location for work from 10 until about 4. There will be educational opportunities with USFWS staff on hand. Tools and equipment will be provided. Face masks are required. Steel toe boots and work gloves are highly recommended. There will be snacks, water and light sandwich fare for a working lunch available. This project will take place rain or shine, so come prepared.
