Trail building Friday 3:30-7:30

The Monday and Wednesday build sessions were so productive, that we’re THIS CLOSE to completing the new entrance trail. Let’s finish it this week!

The session starts at 3:30pm but join us when you can, for as long as you can.We’ll be working near the Mica Crescent park and so we’ll be easy to find if you arrive late. Walk in along the path from the end of the lawn area. 

On the menu: Wheelbarrowing and tamping dirt, nailing boardwalk decking, gathering rocks, and moving a couple large rocks with rock bars.

Bring work gloves and water. If you have a sturdy wheelbarrow and shovel, bring those too. MRWA has plenty of other tools.

Meet at the small park on Mica Crescent in the Governor’s Brook subdivision (map). See you there!

Trail build evening, Wed Aug 2

We have lots of tasks, big, small and in between! Join us when you can, for as long as you can. Wednesday, Aug 2 is the next public build session.

If you arrive after 5:00, take the trail from the bottom of the small grassy park on Norwarren Drive. Cross two bridges and climb a short slope. At the intersection, turn hard left onto West Pine Trail (there might even be a sign!) and follow it out to the granite barren. Keep following the trail on the barrens until you find us. It’s a lovely 10-minute walk. We’ll mark the route with yellow flagging at intersections.

If you want company for the walk in, feel free to pick up a board (yup, lumber) from the pile at the beginning of West Pine.
