The Rindge Conservation Commission held a workday on Saturday at Converse Meadow in Rindge, the second workday for the property this year.

Crews cleared deadfall and treetops that sheared off during weather events over the winter and replaced trail markers around the property’s trail loops. The Conservation Commission is planning on holding a trail day every month this summer to work on the town’s multiple conserved properties.
