We will have a fun and easy “workday” this Saturday. Meet at Trailside Coffee at 9am and we will be walking the 5k cross-country route (the one being used for the Crozet Trails Day 5k race). Bring pruners or loppers if you have them, but otherwise, just come to check out the trail and have a nice Saturday morning walk. We’ll make note of any areas that need some work (there will be a specialized workday in the moning on October 12th). We should be done by 10:30am.
If you want to be involved with Crozet Trails Day but don’t have a lot of time or aren’t sure what is needed, this is for you (especially if you have kids that attend one of the local schools):
We need 2-3 volunteers for each of the four local schools (and we can add Field School too if someone wants to volunteer that) to be stationed at the school and hand out raffle tickets to walkers/bikers form 10-2pm. This can also be divided into two shifts (10-12 and 12-2). We can make these stops fun and exciting too! Feel free to engage the walkers/bikers in games, trivia, or other creative endeavors. Or just hang out in the nice Fall weather with a book and some friends. If your kids want to help out and want to get classmates involved, they could have a bake sale or hand out information about school-related issues. The school officials have been notified about this event and may be willing to help out or think of ways to get involved. Feel free to ask them for ideas or assistance. All the other stops on the Pedestrian Challenge are being staffed by the businesses (see list under the “businesses” tab), but the Schools need some special volunteer attention. Please let me know if you are interested.
Thanks!! Jessica Mauzy
