REMINDER: ROLLING HILLS TRAIL WORK DAY, Sat., May 21, 9:00 AM to 1 PM
Please come out to build new trail at Rolling Hills Park in Ypsilanti Township on Saturday, May 21, 9:00 AM to 1 PM. We will be cleaning up rough cut sections of new trail in the E-W tree line south of the soccer fields to connect the North Meadow loop back to the West Meadow loop at the kettle pond (see photo attached...the part with "Work Area 11/14" as this work area is a continuation of work from last Nov). This tree line is ~1/4 mile long and will replace the adjacent E-W paved path immediately S of the sports fields.
Let's plan to meet at 9 AM in the "sports field" lot in the middle of the northern side of the park road. The work area is only few yards away! Please bring work gloves and sturdy shoes, wear long pants to protect from thorns and bring any good work tools that you might have (lopper, pruning shears,...). If anyone is attending the RHP front gate, let them know that you are entering to work on the MTB trail and they should let you in without charge. Leave a message here if you plan to come out to help.
As for the Humane Society event, we won't have too many people I assume on this work day. And we will use the sports field parking lot which doesn't get a lot of traffic. There should not be much conflict. Just be sure to notify the gate personnel that you are working on the trail.
