NORWICH – The Chenango Greenway Conservancy invites you to celebrate National Trails Day, Saturday June 2, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., on the Chenango Greenway Riverwalk Trail.
National Trails Day is a long-standing celebration of America’s magnificent trail system and its countless supporters and volunteers sponsored by the American Hiking Society. Norwich’s Riverwalk Trail Improvement is one of more than 1,500 events taking place around the country on National Trails Day. National Trails Day is an open invitation to all Americans to get outside and connect with local hiking clubs, outdoor retailers, local parks and recreation departments or federal land managing agencies to experience everything the great outdoors has to offer. The Riverwalk Trail provides an easily accessible place to walk, run, bike and connect with nature, right here in downtown Norwich.
The Chenango Greenway Conservancy encourages you to come explore the Riverwalk Trail on Saturday. Help with seasonal maintenance, work on a new section of trail, or just come and enjoy a walk along the trail. Volunteers will meet at 10 a.m. at the city wells section of the Greenway, behind Weiler Park and Bordentown Circle. Lunch will be provided for volunteers. To register or receive more information or directions, contact the Greenway at email@example.com.
The Chenango Greenway Conservancy is a non-profit organization based in Norwich working to enhance and preserve public access to open space by developing a network of public, multi-use, non-motorized recreational trails centered along the Chenango River and the historic corridors of the former Ontario & Western Railroad and Chenango Canal. Currently approximately five miles of trail is accessible within the City and Town of Norwich. Connections to the Finger Lakes Trail and Chenango Canal Association’s Chenango Canal Towpath Trail in Madison County are also planned.
Since 1993, National Trails Day has inspired thousands of people to enjoy trails on the same day nationwide, taking part in hikes, bike and horse rides, trail maintenance, paddle trips and other activities. Event hosts include local hiking clubs, federal agencies, municipal parks, retailers, land trusts and many other businesses and organizations.
