Thanks to the sixth-grade kids from Cazenovia Middle School, Carpenter's Pond is looking spiffy. Every year in May, students from the middle school celebrate Community Service Day by volunteering their time to help local organizations. This year was no exception, as the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation received much help from the service-minded students.
On warm and sunny May 26, the kids helped clean up the trails around Carpenter's Pond and along the dyke. They laid down mulch, trimmed bushes, picked up brush, planted trees, fixed beaver paths and even built a fence. They all worked hard, and did a great job.
It is student volunteers like these young people, which makes it possible for CPF to be successful in their efforts in preserving and maintaining trails, as well as allowing the community the pleasure of using those trails.
Cazenovia Preservation Foundation is extremely thankful for all of the hard work done around the trails of Carpenter's Pond, and invites the public to come and enjoy the natural beauty of this historic Cazenovia landmark.
