Work Day in Old Trail
November 2, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Meet in Old Trail to erect a small bridge that will improve access from the Creekside Trail to Old Trail Drive. Meet at the corner of Old Trail Drive and Brook View Rd at 9 a.m. We need people to:
- Move materials from the trail near Westhall to the work site in Old Trail – requires using wheelbarrows to collect short boards, moving them about 1/4 mile on the trail and then up a hill, and loading them into a car to be driven to Old Trail;
- Re-route the existing informal trail using pruners, loppers, saws, shovels and rakes;
- Assemble a small bridge, including digging out a solid foundation and placing footings, moving the frame onto the foorings, and using power tools to screw boards into the frame.
Wear sturdy shoes and bring work gloves. Be prepared to use shovels and rakes to prepare the trail surface, and power tools to construct a wooden bridge. Bring water and dress for the weather. Bug spray is recommended. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
If the weather requires us to cancel, we will announce it on our Facebook page one hour before scheduled start time.
