Every spring the seniors at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School participate in Senior Community Service Day – a half-day of volunteer work to be performed in Acton. This year, on April 27, ten students met at the Sylvia Street access point to the Acton section of ARRT to clear the trail of a winter’s worth of downed trees and brush. The students braved poison ivy and the risk of deer ticks. They used hand saws and branch loppers to clear a bit more than half a mile of a path that runs next to the abandoned railroad tracks.
