Let’s Pull Together for Trails!

May 19 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Calling volunteers! On Saturday, May 19th let’s all pull together with Greenbelt Land Trust to remove trailside weeds and to patch sections of trail at Bald Hill Farm. This trail system is a popular gateway to natural areas, so come show it some love! By pulling together, we can protect native plants and our community trails for all to use. This is the second day of a two-day trail event.

The Activity:

  • Clear vegetation and weeds from trail edges using hand tools.
  • Patch damaged sections of trail. We’ll be shoveling gravel and moving it up to 1 mile in motorized toters.
  • Be active at your own pace for several hours. Hike up to 6 miles on uneven natural surface trail where poison oak may be present. Carry hand tools and gear, shovel, lift, bend, and rake.
  • Safety considerations: Rough, uneven natural surfaces. Poison oak may be present. Loud equipment. Please bring protective gloves or use those provided for you. Wear long sleeves, long pants, and close-toed sturdy footwear.

The Location:

Location is at TBA site at the Bald Hill Farm/Fitton Green Natural Areas. Directions will be sent to registered participants prior to the event.
