Trailwork Party for National Trails Day

June 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Friends of Badger Mountain will be teaming with the Kennewick REI store for a National Trails Day work event. We will be working from 9 AM to noon. Please come a little early to sign in.

We will be clearing the weeds away from the edges of the Canyon and Sagebrush Trails. We like to remove the grasses, mustards and other plants from around the rocks along the edge of the trail and from the uphill edge where they are narrowing the trail. The weeds will be pulled or cut off with hoes and McLeods. Kind of like working in a garden.

We will meet at Trailhead Park and break into groups, pick up tools and hike up the trails for the work. All work will be on the Canyon and Sagebrush Trails, there will not be any work in Trailhead Park itself.

You should bring water and snacks, work gloves, sunscreen, and dress for the weather forecast. All tools will be provided. Since we will be moving along the trail while we work, you should also bring a small pack to carry your water and extra cloths in.

Signups are not required but it would be nice if you let me know that you are coming. It helps with planning and making sure we have all the tools we need. Please let me know by sending an email to trailmaster@friendsofbadger.org
