Lodi Valley Chapter Trail Improvement Day

November 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Greetings Trail Friends!
Join us for our Next Trail Improvement Event on Saturday morning, November 10th. 

We will meet at 9 am at the Slack Road trailhead. Watch for the yellow IAT event signs.

We will again be performing some very important work, called de-berming, starting at the Slack Road parking area.Cumulative use of a trail, year-in and year-out, is akin to beating the ground with a hammer. Walking on the trail causes the tread surface to harden and to sink relative to adjacent areas. As each boot or sneaker lifts off the tread a small amount of soil is transported horizontally toward the edge of the trail. Soil accumulates and becomes a berm. The berm obstructs water flow and causes erosion. De-berming is the act of reducing the soil accumulation so that water can continue off the trail.

Help out for as little or as long as you like. The event is appropriate for all ages and capabilities. All tools will be provided – just bring your muscles!
Wear LONG SLEEVES, hefty shoes, bring work gloves and water, and an energetic attitude!
