Thank you, Friends of Webster Trails!

24 Jun

If you’re like a lot of us, you’ve been out walking or biking a lot more these last few months. If some of those treks have been along any of our beautiful Webster trails, this blog is directed to you.

Have you ever thought about why our trails are so plentiful and beautiful? We can thank the all-volunteer Friends of Webster Trails for that. These volunteers put in thousands of hours every summer planning, creating and maintaining these trails. It’s really a thankless job, since only a small percentage of the people who use our trails actually sign up as members of the Friends. (It really doesn’t cost much. Check out the membership page here.)

I was thinking about them as I was biking a few days ago along the Bird Sanctuary Trail, which runs northeast from Orchard Street to Rt. 250 and connects up with the Chiyoda Trail by the Rec Center. This is a beautiful, peaceful, well-maintained trail and an excellent example of the great work the Friends do. It reminded me of why I’m a dues-paying member of the organization and will be for as long as I live in this town.

If you’re not familiar with all of the terrific trails we have here in Webster, check out the Friends of Webster Trails website, then get out there and start exploring. If you ARE already a fan of our trails, please consider dropping $10 for a single membership or $15 for a family. Your donation will go a long way to helping these fine folks help US enjoy our town’s natural beauty for years to come.
