Join us for our next trail improvement event on Saturday, July 10th. Our trail improvement work will be at the Gibraltar Rock Segment of the IAT. Specifically on the Steenbock Preserve. We will meet at 9 am and work until about 2 pm or so. Come for as long or as short a time as you like.
Our tasks for the day include some stone steps leading up to the Steenbock Preserve, rehabilitating some trail tread, and beginning the improvements of the first climbing turn that includes building some short sections of tread and stone work. This is a slightly longer day than usual because of two things: one is the stonework and the other is that we will be taking some extra time for instruction and training you, the volunteers. We may also have a youth group volunteering this Saturday.
All tools needed will be provided. Wear long sleeves and sturdy shoes. Bring work gloves, water, a snack or lunch if you are staying until the end, probably bug dope since it is that time of year, and an energetic attitude!
We will meet at the Merrimac Ferry Wayside on Hwy 113. Come for as long or as short a time as you like.
