Lost River Icebreaker 2017
In 1912, the Forest Society purchased 157 acres to protect the magnificent narrow glacial gorge, making it the first Forest Society Reservation. About 25 volunteers joined the effort to help out at this spring cleaning event.
This year volunteers managed vegetation along trails, swept boardwalks, cleared parking areas from winter debris, placed signage, and weeded and mulched flower beds around the visitor’s center. Volunteers were eager to get to work and warm up a bit amid the drizzle that sustained through most of the morning.
By the time the spring tasks were completed, the clouds started to clear, and volunteers were able to explore the gorge and boulder caves before it opened to the public.
Well-maintained boardwalks and staircases allow safe access the gorge even for families with kids.
