East-West Trail Kiosk Unveiling & Hike

THURSDAY, MAY 6 at 5:00 pm | Meet at Red Square

Join Park Spirit of Worcester and Clark University’s Listening In Nature program as we celebrate the completion of twenty-two newly installed directional and informational signs and kiosks along Worcester’s 14-mile East-West Trail. They feature maps of the trail and colorful narratives highlighting the past and present of each green space and neighborhood through which the trail passes. Our kiosk unveiling event will spotlight the research of Clark University History Professor Janette Greenwood and local historian Frank Morrill on the early 20th century settlement of people of color in the Beaver Brook Neighborhood. John Rogan, Clark University Professor of Geography, will also present the accomplishments he and a team of students have achieved in restoring Clark’s Hadwen Arboretum, the midpoint of the East-West Trail. 

We will leave from Red Square at 5:00pm to walk over to Beaver Brook Park. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5:30pm. 

This event is organized as part of Listening in Nature Week.
