The Wilton Woman’s Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. One of the first projects the club supported in 1966 was cleaning up the Norwalk River. Today, our club is supporting the five-town NRVT committee as it creates a 38-mile network of trails along the river from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, to Rogers Park in Danbury. Since 2013, the committee has received over $1,000,000 in private donations.
The next step, for Wilton, is to build a boardwalk that will bridge the end of the trail just north of Sharp Hill Road to future trails from Twin Oak Lane to Skunk Lane. This 200-foot boardwalk will be used as an educational platform by local science teachers. The completed trail will provide opportunities for children to access safe walking and biking trails to move between sports, school, and social events. It will give commuters access to the train station, and outdoor enthusiasts a place to walk, bike and enjoy our natural surroundings. The NRVT is ADA compatible and accessible to those with mobility constraints.
You can help raise funds for the Wilton section of the NRVT, and have a fun afternoon with friends, by attending the luncheon, fashion show, and silent auction on April 1 at Rolling Hills. Click here to register.
