The Red Flag Project

If you have visited SVT's Gray Reservation in Sudbury recently, you may have noticed small red flags along the path. What are they marking? Dog waste!

Emily Anderson, a MassLIFT-AmeriCorps member at SVT, is working to raise awareness about the impact that dogs have on conservation land. Emily has used these flags to mark any dog waste that is visible from the hiking trail at Gray. By May 30, she had posted more than 85 flags along the trail!
