Group hosts hikes in Robinson State Park

AGAWAM The Friends of Robinson State Park will host informational walks in Robinson State Park on July 15 at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The Friends group explained that the purpose of these walks will be to educate the interested public about protecting the second growth trees of this 852 acre park, and to discuss how the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' proposed timber sale of 133 acres of soft and hard woods within the parkwill affect the overall health of this beautiful forest.

Participants are asked to bring water and wear appropriate footwear and clothing for the 60-90 minute hikes.

Trails are easy to moderate. Individuals are asked to meet at the Main Entrance of Robinson State Park on North Street in Agawam. Only hard rain will cancel the walks.

Large groups (over 15 individuals)i.e. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc. are asked to call 789-1744 to arrange private tours.
