Exchange had 18 people on the National Day of Service, providing 100% of the work force for a project of the Needham Park and Rec Commission and the Needham Conservation Commission.
We cleared a trail connection at Ridge Hill (a protected area of forest, meadow, and walking paths); members used saws, clippers, and muscle to take down trees and branches in Paul Bunyan-like fashion.
Combined with a 4.5 mile walk to get to and from the trail, it was a cardiac morning! Park and Rec and the Conservation Commission were thrilled at the work that was done.demanding task of cutting
and removing was very physical work, cutting back branches and small trees and a huge amount of work was accomplished.
