Clean up trails around the Wadsworth Mansion

Cathy Lechowicz, Director of Community Service and Volunteerism, writes:

The Wadsworth Mansion is looking for volunteers to conduct a trail cleanup. The cleanup will be led by Jane Harris, an avid volunteer who is knowledgeable about trails, trees and shrubs. Any able volunteers can join in the cleanup. Refreshments will be offered. Interested students should contact Barbara MacEachern at bmaceachern@wes.

I’d recommend helping out for three reasons:

  1. You’ll get to clean up a beautiful part of Middletown, helping the environment.
  2. You’ll get to interact with Middletown residents and act as an ambassador for Wesleyan.
  3. The Wadsworth Mansion and the surrounding area (the backyard, the trails, the hills, and the abutting Wadsworth Falls State Park) are gorgeous areas. The birch forests and the shade trees along the old carriage entrance are things no Wesleyan student should miss.

Date: Saturday, Nov. 1
Time: 10:00 AM – noon
