National Trails Day is on Saturday, June 1 this year, and we’re planning to celebrate by finishing up the trail resurfacing project at the Gus Fruh access that we started back in March.

We’ll begin at 8:00 AM and work until we’re done, hopefully by 10:30 or 11:00. There’s water in the creek now and the crowds will be arriving, so the sooner we can finish up and get out of the way, the better. It’s also likely to be hot. So we’ll start early and only do the trail work this time instead of the variety of tasks that we usually take on.

We only need about 25 volunteers to complete the trail work but due to the rainy weather and concerns about getting the materials that we need, we’re slow getting organized again. June 1 is only 2 weeks away now! Please let us know as soon as you can if you’re able to work with us that day by sending us an email.

We’re looking forward to getting this job finished and hope that you’ll be able to join us. Breakfast tacos will be provided!

Thanks,
Stan and Glee
