Trailwork Party – November 2nd
November 2 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
The progress has been slow this week, the weather turned cool and that apparently discouraged some volunteers, only a few helpers each day except Sunday’s crew of 5. The work is much easier now that we have completed the rocky section. We have completed about 600 feet of the 3500 foot long trail with gravel and another 750 feet is ready for the gravel. The trailmaster has provided the above map showing the progress. After Tuesday’s rain the ground is in great shape for the work but it can freeze solid soon.
The schedule this week is Thursday through Sunday – 8 AM to noon. We will be meeting where the trail meets Morency Drive near the top of the east shoulder of Little Badger. See the map below.
We will be concentrating on getting the trail ready for gravel by smoothing out the bumps and getting the rocks out. The tools we will be using are mostly rakes and McLeods (big rakes). If you can’t make it this week, there will work parties every Thursday through Sunday up until the end of November.
The trailmaster will provide all the tools and even some homemade cookies at the mid-morning break. Volunteers need to bring work gloves, water, and snacks with a small pack to carry them, and dress for the weather forecast. There isn’t any work for preteens and younger – it is hard to keep them motivated for 4 hours. You will need to sign-up so the trailmaster can plan the work and bake enough cookies. Please let the trailmaster know that you are coming by sending an email to [email protected]
