Trailbuilding: Verona Segment, Dane County
July 30 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
What: Help build 844 ft. of new Ice Age Trail in Verona. (Trust me, I measured it.) This is a vital piece of our effort to reconnect with existing trail after phase one of the sewer construction project wrapped up on 2021.
When: Friday, July 29 & Saturday, July 30. We will work from 8:00 AM to Noon each day. If you can only come for a couple hours, that’s fine.
Where: We will meet in the cul-de-sac at the south end of Lincoln St. in the city of Verona. See attached map.
Parking: Please be considerate of our neighbors who live in this area. If you park a couple blocks away and walk to the cul-de-sac, it will reduce crowding.
How to dress/what to expect: We will be moving and piling brush & logs, raking the trail corridor and constructing trail. All hand tools will be provided. Please wear long pants and hiking boots or sturdy shoes with closed toes and socks. A sun hat is a good idea. Bring work gloves, at least two liters of water and snacks. There are some mosquitos, so you may want insect repellent. Volunteers will be organized into trail crews led by a trained crew leader.
Volunteers in Parks (VIP) program: The National Park Service asks that all volunteers file, on a yearly basis, a Volunteer Service Agreement form. In the unlikely event of an injury, a VIP’s medical expenses are covered by the federal government. If you have not filed a Volunteer Service Agreement in 2022, please do so before this trail event: https://www.iceagetrail.org/wp-content/uploads/Packet-Individual-301a-exp-10_2024.pdf
