Have you ever wondered about the "Franklin Woodland Trails" sign between the Reisterstown Library and the Franklin Elementary School?
Jeanne Andrews, a Certified Master Naturalist, chairs the restoration project of the park and will meet volunteers at the foot bridge between the parking lots of the library and Reisterstown United Methodist Church for a tour. As a librarian she looked out and saw the potential for this green open space. With her vision, she came to RIA for support and now chairs the Committee working to bring this wonderful area alive for our town. Just behind the 200 block of Main Street and library, her volunteers meet to plan the revitalization for this forgotten park. Each month, RIA will be working to clean up and reclaim this environmental treasure for our community with a goal of a Grand Opening Spring 2021.
Come join other volunteers as we revitalize this park for the community. Please bring work gloves and a bottle of water.
Summary of Progress:
2nd Saturday of each month volunteers gather to continue the restoration project, 9am at the trail head near the footbridge to keep work moving forward.
Saturday, September 14, 2019 was a BIG day with revitalization .... spreading mulch day.... all hands on deck! All volunteers are welcome each month from 9am until noon. Click download to see and print a flier to share with friends and service groups.
Northwest Recycling located on Cockeys Mill Road not only donated the mulch but also provided a dumpster a couple of times to clear wood debris. Great job by volunteers working to fill it. Now volunteers are defining the trail through the woods, developing the learning and play areas. Come become a part of the team.
