Calling all volunteers!

Are you a runner, walker, skateboarder, foliage admirer, cyclist, or generally interested in helping keep Lebanon’s greenway corridor beautiful and safe and potentially extending it to White River Junction?

A team of Dartmouth engineering students is helping the City explore options for extending the Mascoma River Greenway (MRG) corridor in Lebanon to White River Junction. Let’s help bridge the ped and bike gap between New Hampshire and Vermont!

Join us on Saturday, November 3rd from 10am to 2pm for a few hours (or whatever you can attend for) to do the clean-up and give your feedback about the greenway extension. Dartmouth engineering students, City of Lebanon staff, and friends of the MRG and Northern Rail Trail will be in attendance. Doughnuts and coffee will be provided!

Location: Meet up at the Mascoma Street “MRG Parking Lot” across from Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, Alice Peck Day Drive, Lebanon, NH.

Tips: Wear gear and shoes appropriate to the weather and tasks. Bring rakes and vegetation cutters, if you have any. Other equipment will be provided.

This event is sponsored by Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, Northern Rail Trail, Mascoma River Greenway, and the City of Lebanon. For more information, please call the Lebanon Planning and Development office at 603-448-1457 x1473.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Five students from the Dartmouth Thayer School of Engineering are working on a six-month project with Friends of the Northern Rail Trail to model the final extension of the Mascoma River Greenway. Their final product will include a feasibility and safety report as well as a detailed map of the final MRG trail alignment from Glen Road to White River Junction. The group will present their project at the November 13th Lebanon Ped and Bike Advisory Committee meeting and welcome all interested community members
