Trail Update: Welcoming volunteers from WSU on Feb 25, 2022.

This Saturday, Feb 25, we are welcoming a team of volunteers from Washington State University (WSU) Research and Extension Center in Mount Vernon. Thanks to Dr.Lindsey for organizing friends and colleagues for a day of trail building!

Here’s our plan for the day:

  • Fill, grade, and level using native soil
  • Spreading and compacting crushed rock
  • Final capping with fine gravel
  • Preparing the meadow for spring grass seed
  • Trail side restoration – transplanting ferns, spreading leaves to make the trail look like it’s always been there!

We are anticipating cold (but dry) weather – please dress warmly and bring water and a hearty lunch.

At the trail head we will have the fire pit stoked and hot drinks for all. Our safety meeting begins at 9am, so plan to arrive a little early.

If you haven’t already signed up, it’s not too late. Visit our website form.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
