Vose Library and the Georges River Land Trust are exploring the possibility of establishing a nature trail along the creek on the library property. We envision this project as a way to use the library’s assets to serve our community. We hope the trail will become a focus for educational programs for all ages and for the enjoyment of nature. To make this trail possible, we will need help of all sorts; willing hands, team organization, planning, ideas and opinions…for anyone who is interested in helping, there is a way to be involved. Call or stop in at the library to find out more!
