Addison Oaks Spring Cleanup - CANCELED

Postby utabintarbo » April 9th, 2011, 2:10 pm

Looking at Sunday, May 1 for a trail day. Come work off all that Easter candy!

We will be assessing the status of the trail and do some trimming and leaf/deadfall removal to allow the trail to warm-up and drain. Tools needed will be leaf/garden rakes, blowers (if available), loppers, and a shovel or two. I will try to get the trailer there so there will be tools available.

Mark your calendars! :D

Ummm, 9AM. Yeah, that'll work. :icon_thumleft:

Park behind the Maintenance building (map). No sticker or admission will be necessary.

EDIT: Too much water, and more on the way. Please feel free to trim/clear on your own (once the water dries up, of course) and please report your hours to me. I will reschedule something later in the season. Thanks.

Just a reminder that this Sunday is the trail day. Given all this rain, boots may be in order. :P

Either way, I'll have bagels. :icon_thumleft:

ps. Please don't hesitate to post up if you'll be able to make it. It'll help with the bagel count! :D

General clean-up is the main work to be done right? If so I may have the whole clan out there. my little ones can't bench cut to save thier lives (yet) but tell 'em to throw sticks off the trail and it's a day to be remembered.

Funny that you ask.... I think precisely because of those reasons this should be canceled. Way too much water out there right now, and there's more to come. Better to schedule a trail day when there's some trimming to do in June or so.
