Trail of Tears Shooting Range

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Do you want to continue to keep the West Barnstable Conservation Area quiet and safe for biking?  We need your help! A group of concerned citizens are working to keep the shooting range (located on the north side of the West Barnstable Conservation Area) closed. 

The Town of Barnstable wants to re-open the range as soon as it can (it's been closed since Dec 2012).  A few trails will be closed to make a "buffer zone" from the shooting ranges. 

If you are concerned about this and might be willing to write an email or make a phone call, or, if you just want to learn more about what's going on regarding efforts to keep the Conservation Area safe for ALL passive recreation, send a note to and we'll get right back to you!  Thanks!

At the October 16th Barnstable Town Council meeting the Council voted to put off consideration of this issue until January 22nd.

>>Try to attend that meeting it will be at 7:00 PM at Town Hall, South Street, Hyannis that's when the vote is expected to be taken.
