Bluff Point State Park and Coastal Reserve
 
 
 
We are always thrilled when members of our military offer to help us maintain our parks.
 
This 2015 season, sailors from the Naval Branch Health Clinic in the US Submarine Base in Groton donated 35 collective hours of service on their first day alone!

The Naval Branch Health Clinic team started removing invasives and widening a densely overgrown trail.
Thanks to their dedication, commitment and service, the trail will be safer and more accessible to visitors.

Thanks to the US Navy sailors who adopted Bluff Point State Park and Coastal Reserve.  This group cut back three feet of overgrown brush from both sides of the main trail and a side trail and removed downed trees and branches  in the trails. This effort has made our trails safer and much more passable for park visitors.
