Volunteers will be reworking a main trail into the property called the Old Coal Road off Pleasant Street to channel the water runoff and diminish the erosion effects.
Workers from McLean Hospital will be operating equipment but Belmont volunteers are needed to spread material with rakes and shovels and reroute one of the smaller subsidiary trails.
Community service hours will be provided for Belmont High School students.
Volunteers will meet at 8 a.m. in Highland Meadow Cemetery, 700 Concord Ave., at the bottom of the hill once you enter the cemetery. Park on the road surface. Volunteers will walk to the work site on the upper portion of the Old Coal Road ( accessible for walkers across from Valley Crest, 1010 Pleasant St.) near the Pleasant Street entrance to Shaws Supermarket.
Volunteers should wear work gloves and bring a metal rake and/or shovel.
