About the Friends of the Wayland Rail Trail

The Friends of the Wayland Rail Trail are a volunteer group of residents who support converting the Mass. Central Rail Line into a rail trail. We want to make the trail the best it can be both for users and for those who live near it . We will work with DCR , the Town, the developer, and  rail bed neighbors to design, build and maintain the trail.

    We need assistance with fund raising, publicity, design, landscaping, newsletters, correspondence, promotions, community outreach, trail clean up and event planning.  The support and participation from “Friends” is essential. Show your support for the trail and consider volunteering some time.
