Back to our Trail Building…

Yup, we still have capping work to complete!

This week, on Tuesday after all of the rain, we walked the trail. It is in great shape, and with the warmer weather (compared to last session), we think it’s going to be fine. Let’s finish the trail!

We still need volunteers for Saturday’s, February 27th session. To sign up please contact us!

February 13th, 2021- Canceled!

The Thursday, February 11, 2021 forecast (above) led to our canceling the Saturday (2/13) session. The forecast was CRAZY accurate!!!

February 27th session alternates are needed…

To volunteer please contact us!

January 23rd, 2021…

The first meadow on the Pump-house Trail…

The above area, when we started, was covered by blackberries. Now the trail is nearly done.

January 23rd we had great weather and an awesome session. Lots of photos were taken.

The first group of photos were taken by a few of us volunteering, the second by Terry Afdem, that is our photographer. Please check them out, and let us know what photos are your favorites…

Soon we’ll start our next trail, youth internships were added, and a new restoration program is planned. It’s a lot, we’re excited.

If volunteering interests you please contact us!

A hiker taking a moment to say thanks.

 

On January 9th our volunteers worked in two locations; one team (above) worked on the Pump-house Trail, the second team worked on the Brickyard Creek Trail – see the photos.

 

Thank goodness, a New Year!

We’re adding a third group, to increase volunteer opportunities and increase our group’s capacity. After finishing the Pump-house Trail we go to work at Port, on the Brickyard Creek Trail.

December 12th, 2020…

On Saturday, December 12th, we had awesome weather, and finished off another stockpile. The photo (just above) shows the material we started with, nine of us – including one new volunteer.

Capping the Pump-house Trail will go through January, and perhaps into February. For more photos of this session checkout our session gallery. You may also enjoy our virtual hike.

We hope you will contact us about volunteering. Our session size will increase in the new year.

Happy Holidays, expect more news soon!

Craig (above), Tess and Don all earned their STB volunteer tee shirts this session. Thanks!

Capping of the Pump-house Trail continues. More than half of the mile long trail has been completed. Please take a look at our session gallery, or join us for a virtual hike

Going forward, alternates for the December 12th session are needed, along with positions on the January 9th, and January 23rd sessions.

Please contact us if you are interested!

November 1st, 2020…

Sunday, November 1st was gorgeous! It was so nice that people circled the parking lot waiting for an open space. The growing popularity of the Veterans Park is wonderful.

Please like us on Facebook, and contact us to become a volunteer!

October 24th, 2020…

A trail section after capping and compaction…

In addition to capping, volunteers installed a culvert, as our photos show. Capping of the Pump-house Trail is now expected to continue for “at least” two more sessions.

The November 14th session is full, but spots remain on the December 12th and January 9th sessions. Please contact us to add your name to our special session roster!

More Volunteers are Needed…

Near the North end of the Pump-house Trail…

Volunteer sessions resumed on October 10th. Ballast rock, shown in the last post, was covered with 5/8″ minus crushed. Capping will continue at the upcoming session.

That October 24th session is full, but spots on both the November 14th and December 12th sessions remain open.

Hopefully we will be able to add a third group of five volunteers, so work on a new trail can begin. It’s called the Brickyard Creek Trail, and can be viewed on this map.

Please contact us to add your name to our special session roster!
