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.
