Green Hills: Trail Building Volunteer Day

February 5, 2017

By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager

Next Sunday, February 12, we will be working at Green Hills to build a new trail through the newly-acquired woods there. 

We’ve laid out a route that meanders around the terrain and circles around the two ravines there before coming out near the top of a large meadow with breathtaking views. But at the moment the path is blocked by thick vegetation that will need to be cut and moved aside. We’ll bring some pruners, loppers, and hand saws, and a mattock or two; bring your own hand tools if you would prefer.

Also bring work gloves, sturdy shoes, water, and dress for the weather.

We’ll meet at 1 pm at the parking area at 553 Gunhart Road, then we’ll drive a mile down the road to get closer to the project site. We’ll wrap up by 4 pm. Hope to see you there!
