Happy Trails Along the Saw Mill

Steve Pucillo, board member of Groundwork Hudson Valley, will speak about how he headed up the transformation of 14.4 miles of crumbling, 19th-century railroad tracks along the Saw Mill River Parkway in Westchester County, NY, into a beautiful trail.

The work, which is continuing, included clearing away tracks, cleaning and widening the pathway, placing benches, birdhouses and bridges.

Now the South County Trailway is a haven for walking, running, biking, roller-blading in three seasons, and x-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter.

This FREE public talk will take place on Tuesday, February 25 at 9:45 am at the O’Hara Nature Center on Mountain Road in Irvington. There will be ample free parking and refreshments will be served. No RSVP needed.
