Volunteers needed for Lands Trust cleanup

Apr 10, 2018

Members of the Sippican Lands Trust's "Trail Clearing Crew" are looking for help to clean up at the Trust's Osprey Marsh property on Saturday, April 14.

The clean-up will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It will clear the trail for the future accessible boardwalk.

Osprey Marsh is a 19.8-acre parcel of protected upland woods, wetlands and marshland, offering views of Planting Island Cove. Osprey Marsh was donated to the Sippican Lands Trust in 2014 by Mary Howland Smoyer in cooperation with her children and her siblings, Edward Howland, George Howland and Meg Howland.

The Howland family inherited the property from their grandparents, Edward and Eleanor Howland, with guidelines expressing the hope that the property be kept in its natural state.

Future plans include building a fully accessible boardwalk at Osprey Marsh that will connect with the existing trail.

Want to help? Send an email to info@sippicanlandstrust.org. Lunch will be provided.

Parking for Osprey Marsh is located off Point Road approximately three miles south of the intersection of Route 6 (Wareham Road) and Point Road in Marion.
