Trailwork Party – March 1st

March 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Volunteer for Trailwork

For this trailwork party we will be meeting at the Westgate parking lot off of Dallas Road.

This trailwork party will focus on the new trail toward Little Badger Mountain. We’ll be working two shifts, 8:30-12:30 and 12:30-4:30, and will meet at the Westgate parking lot off of Dallas Road. We will then carpool to the work site.

We pay for the rental equipment by the day so there will be two work shifts each day, 8:30 to 12:30 and 12:30 to 4:30. We will be using a Kubota mini-excavator and our gravel hauler. While the machines do the hard work but we still need caring hands to finish the trail. Lots of caring hands! Grab a friend or two and come help. The work will mostly be knocking the dirt off of grass clumps and raking out small rocks and smoothing the trail for gravel. We plan to add the gravel as we go so hopefully you will be able to see fresh new trail before you leave.

The trailmaster will need a lot of help to build the new trail, at least 5 people a shift.

The trailmaster will provide all the tools and even some cookies at the mid-day break. Volunteers will need to bring work gloves, water and snacks with a pack to carry them, and dress for the weather forecast. There isn’t any work for preteens and younger, it is just hard to keep them motivated for 4 hours.

Signups help our trailmaster with planning and making sure he bakes enough cookies. Sign-ups are also good in case of last minute changes to the schedule. Please let our trailmaster know that you are coming by sending an email to trailmaster@friendsofbadger.org
