THE COISH WALK

At the time the Town's tourism Committee had a stated goal of having a walkway around the
entire perimeter of the Coish.  Utilizing Conservation Corps grants in 1996 and 1997, and a
Waste Management Fund grant in 2000, the Society was able to clean up the shoreline from
the Klondyke Causeway to Country Brook and develop a shoreline walkway.  With assistance
from the Town and David Powell, a bridge was constructed over the Brook.  Truckloads of
garbage, including a motor vehicle engine, were removed.  If nothing else, it was an
environmental success.
