Trailwork Party on October 14th

October 14 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Work days this week and next week will be Thursday through Sunday, from 8:30 to 12:30, meeting near the Trailhead Park restroom building.

Why the rocks? The soil on the north side of Badger Mountain is made of very fine particles, mostly wind deposits. That’s right, it is piled up dust and is very weak. We need to support the downhill edge of the trail or it will sluff off narrowing the trail and making it less safe.

I will provide all the tools. You will need to bring work gloves, snacks and water, and dress for the weather. Also we will be working next to the ground so maybe a gardening pad? There isn’t any work for preteens and younger.

Signups helps with planning and making sure we have all the tools we need and how many cookies I need to bake. Please let me know that you are coming by sending an email to trailmaster@friendsofbadger.org

I will have work days most Fridays Saturdays and Sundays and various weekdays until Thanksgiving. If you can not make it to this week’s work parties, maybe you can plan for one of these other days.
