Trail Day Update!

A quick update for those who can join us:
Looks like the weather will be good!

1. Footwear: the snow is melting. Waterproof and warm footwear is recommended.

2. Activities: We will be working on the following:
- Rerouting part of the first trail around an area used by hunters. We have already selected and pre-marked the route and will be trimming back some bushes, setting permanent trail markers, etc.
- Trimming back overgrowth and remarking already established trails
- Trailhead clean-up. There has been some dumping and some target practice at the entrance of the area. We will arrange for someone to collect and properly dispose of all consolidated trash after our trail day.

3. Bring: clippers, loppers, hand saws, hammers, and gloves! If you have extra tools & gloves and are willing to share, please bring them! We will be very appreciative and will make sure that you leave with everything you came with (we have some extra tools to share as well)!

4. We will finish around 2pm or a little before. If you are interested in checking out more of the area after our trail work, I'm planning to hang out and go for a hike/walk/ trail run (depending on who sticks around what people are up for).

Looking forward to seeing/meeting you all on Sunday!
