Join Team Muddy at our Inaugural Hike on July 10th

Northeast Wilderness Trust is creating a new community of wilderness champions in Massachusetts. Team Muddy will be a small community of those who love Muddy Pond Wilderness Preserve and are committed to its preservation as a wild ecosystem. NEWT will reach out to this group between one and three times a year with offerings to get further involved. “Muddy buddies” will have the opportunity to participate in volunteer days, educational events, BioBlitzes, fundraising, and advocacy for wild places in Massachusetts.

Want to join Team Muddy? The group is open to all, and there are no requirements or mandatory commitments to join…just a love for the land! Email to be added to the Team Muddy email list, and to RSVP Yes or No to this event.
