Washington/Ozaukee County Chapter – Trail Improvement Work – Loew Lake Segment
May 25 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
What: We will work on the Loew Lake segment of the trail. One group will work south from the parking lot focusing on tread repair. A second group will work east removing buckthorn.
Location: Meet at 5 PM at the Emerald Road parking lot. Click here for driving directions. Watch for yellow “Ice Age Trail Event” signs.
What to Bring: We recommend wearing a long-sleeve shirt, pants, and hat for trail work. Bring a face mask or face covering in case it is necessary to work closely with others. Sturdy hiking or work boots and leather work gloves are also recommended for some tasks. You may also want to bring a bottle of water, backpack, insect repellent, and sunscreen.
COVID-19 RISK MITIGATION ACTIONS: Social distancing will be practiced, with volunteers spread out at different locations on the trail. Face masks will be required if working in close proximity to other individuals on the same task. We will follow all the other risk mitigation actions recommended by the National Park Service in the COVID-19 JHA.
RSVP: If you are planning to help, please RSVP with the number of people attending by April 26th to the chapter email ([email protected]). This allows us to plan how much work to tackle and the number of tools to bring.
