It was shaping up to be a really productive spring. We had our first few trail days scheduled earlier than ever, we had plans, and we had the motivation.
Then, a pandemic happened.
To follow state guidelines, we called off our first few public trails days to make sure we kept our volunteers safe. In the meantime, we worked with property owners and trail directors to keep basic maintenance going and were forced to shelf some of our bigger projects for later on. March turned to April, and April turned to May. Finally, we’re in a position to safely get you all back to work, if you’ll join us!
This Saturday, June 6, join us at Sandy Beach County Park to get your hands dirty. The Dragon Trail is one of our most ambitious projects yet, and both now and for months to come, we’ll need a dedicated group of folks to help bring it life. We’ll be working on trimming, raking, and cleaning up some specific sections of trails.
Of course, we’ll also be taking measures to keep everyone safe. Show up with a mask to receive directions and assignments, and know that all groups will be less than ten people and encouraged to spread out. Additionally, we’ll be pre-disinfecting all WMMBA tools if you need to borrow an implement, plus we’ll have a stash of individually-packaged snacks. You can help by following social distancing guidelines, bringing disinfectant, and staying home if you feel sick in any way, or if you have been exposed to anyone feeling ill.
This trail day will be a great way to see how safely we can pull off trail days and slowly start to add more to the calendar as the state relaxes restrictions and we can ensure the safety of everyone who is willing to help.
Make sure you follow the event page here and RSVP so we know how many folks will be there!
