Saw Mill River Spots

The inimitable Steve Pucillo and his volunteers have installed nine butterfly gardens along the South County Trailway, one of the major branches of Hastings' conceptual pollinator pathway. Out of a trash-strewn trail that suffered from invasive vines and erosion, Steve and his team have created an oasis. The trail is paved, and great for walking, biking and jogging.
