Onancock Nature Trail grows 300 feet longer
ONANCOCK --The days may be getting shorter, but the Onancock Nature Trail is getting longer. On Sept. 16, the nature trail at the Historic Onancock School was extended by 300 feet, thanks to a partnership between local businesses and the Eastern Shore Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalists.

Ten Virginia Master Naturalists cleared and leveled the trail to prepare for a layer of crushed concrete. T&W Block donated 42,000 pounds of recycled concrete to the current project. S&T Construction donated time, equipment and expertise in moving and laying the stone. "This is a fine example of local businesses, the town, and volunteer Master Naturalists working together for the benefit of our neighbors, kids, and nature," said Donna Ware.
