Groundwork Somerville is partnering with Bike to the Sea, Inc., to assist with outreach and volunteer activities around the construction of sections of the Northern Strand Community Trail (or Bike to the Sea Trail), a multi-use pathway which, when complete, will span five communities: Everett, Malden, Saugus, Lynn, and Revere.  As a key partner on this project, GWS works closely with local conservation commissions, local and regional community groups, and area businesses.  As in 2010, several community events will take place around this project in 2011, namely trail clean-ups and trail construction.  Hundreds of volunteers will help with the project, developing a renewed appreciation of the benefits of our urban environment.
