With October coming to a close, we also conclude the “marketing and outreach” bonanza for the fall season. The Crozet Trails Day event (photos coming later)was a success and there are already plans forming for next year. Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets (and thanks to Relay Foods and Blue Ridge Mountain Sports for donating items!!). The items have now gone to the winners– Congratulations to Ann, Tim, James, and Elizabeth!
The week prior to Crozet Trails Day, the CTC worked with two youth groups: WAHS 9th grade workday at Mint Springs (photos coming later) and Cub Scout Pack 114 workday at the Henley Hornets Trail (photos below). Both events were helpful and enjoyable and we hope to engage in more events like this in the future.
The upper section of the Grayrock Ponds Trail entrance is finished. If you are in the area, especially during a rain event, please go by and see how we did. If you notice any issues with erosion, please let me know.
There is a workday at Preddy Creek this Saturday (see previous post for details). This is a good chance for new Crew volunteers to learn more about how the County builds new trail systems. If you are interested in going and would like to carpool, let me know (either by comment on here or send me an email).
The next trail event in Crozet (as currently scheduled) will be a trail walk and trail work introduction on November 6th at Mint Springs Park. This walk will be led by Tucker or Dan from Albemarle County and will aim to orient everyone to the Mint Springs trail system, point out potential work day projects, and introduce new Crew members to trail work techniques and standards. Come on out and bring your family.
Our next Monthly Meeting will be held on November 11th (Thursday) at 6pm at the Crozet Mudhouse. Hope to see all of you there!
