Trailbuilding: LaBudde Creek Segment, Sheboygan County
August 18 @ 8:00 am - August 21 @ 12:00 pm
Prime hiking season is right around the corner! Help us open a new mile of Ice Age Trail along the busy, eastern side of the state. Land recently acquired by the Department of Natural Resources provides additional protection for Sheboygan County’s LaBudde Creek watershed. It also enables the Alliance to extend the LaBudde (pronounced La Buddy) Creek Segment. A win on multiple levels!
What We’re Doing
Small, numerous crews will be spread out across the project area to clear Trail corridor and create the new path – otherwise known as treadwork – install signage posts, paint blazes, and spruce up portions of the existing segment. Crews will also build boardwalk over a perennially wet area along the nearby Walla Hi Segment.
If you’ve never attended an MSC event, this project offers a great opportunity to learn fundamental trailbuilding skills while opening a brand-new mile of Trail!
All Talents and Abilities Welcome!
As with all Mobile Skills Crew events, no experience is necessary. There’s a role for volunteers of all ages and abilities. Hands-on training provided by certified and friendly volunteer crew leaders will help you get started immediately.
