Wild & Scenic volunteers at Keystone Arch

Wild & Scenic volunteers worked through Saturday’s rain to clear the stunning 62 ft. Keystone Arch Bridge.

Meredyth Babcock, Westfield River Wild & Scenic volunteer coordinator, would like to thank all of the many volunteers from past and present Wild & Scenic projects for the gifts they freely give of time, energy and spirit.
“These invaluable river stewards amaze and inspire me to continue coordinating and thoroughly enjoying many workdays,” she said. “Workdays that help maintain the trails and unique places we cherish along the nationally designated Wild & Scenic Westfield River.”
If you would like to add your name to the list of river stewards, please call Meredyth at 413-623-2070. If your days of river walking and hauling brush have passed, we welcome volunteers who bake goodies, hang fliers and help pursue grant funding for larger projects, such as the restoration of the Keystone Arch Bridges.
In addition to workdays, we offer free trainings that increase our knowledge and commitment to protecting this rare and beautiful watershed and continue developing our “Walkin the Watershed” program where volunteers monitor the river they love.
