Scarborough residents craft trail signs

SCARBOROUGH — Thanks to a group of residents at Piper Shores, nearly 50 handcrafted wooden signs will mark walking trails and open fields at 220-acre Fuller Farm and 25-acre Sewell Woods. 

The two properties are owned and maintained by Scarborough Land Trust for year-round public use. People using SLT's recreational trails in these areas have previously had to rely on maps to follow the pathways. 

“It really takes a village to do land conservation,” Kathy Mills, executive director of SLT, said in a press release. “The Land Trust relies heavily on the time, talent, and generosity of volunteers. We could not be more grateful to the enthusiastic volunteers at the Piper Shores wood shop.”

Four residents of Piper Shores, a retirement community on Higgins Beach, spent a total of 100 hours on the project.
