Waukesha/Milwaukee County Chapter Workday
April 18, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm
This is a wonderful land stewardship opportunity, as we partner with REI to build 280 yards of trail. With your help, we’ll relocate a badly eroded section of the Scuppernong Segment of the trail in the Southern Kettle Moraine Forest. We’ll start the day with a 20-minute guided hike to the worksite, learning about the Ice Age Trail and unique glacier features along the way. Then we’ll put our muscles to use for a few hours of inspiring trail building before enjoying our return hike, lunch, and some fun giveaway items to celebrate a rewarding day of stewardship!
No experience in trail building is needed, as all tools and training will be provided at the event. Volunteers need to bring work gloves, sturdy shoes/boots, and a water bottle. Long sleeves and pants are highly recommended. Additional event details will be emailed to registered volunteers approximately one week before the event. Space is limited, so please pre-register for this event, so we can plan for the lunch and tools. People of all ages are welcome to attend, but please leave small children and pets at home, as the tools are sharp and can be dangerous.
LOCATION: SCUPPERNONG SEGMENT – Meet at the ZZ parking lot east of Hwy 67. Watch for the yellow “Ice Age Trail Event” signs to guide you to the work site.
