We ventured a little outside of Boston for CommuniTyler this year, heading to the Blue Hills reservation in Milton, MA. There, our 27 volunteers (some new!) joined forces with other volunteers from the Friends of the Blue Hills for some trail maintenance – we created ditches for water drainage and cleared trees. In total, we cleaned up about 2 football fields of trail for hikers to enjoy. Afterwards, we had a delightful BBQ – and, per usual, the forecasted rain never came – I think we have Ty to thank for that.
