Extra hands are needed to build two new bridges across beaver dams on the Orange Trail. Tasks include assembling crib supports, collecting crib rocks, and placing and securing the 17-foot-long split cedar logs that will be the decks.
Thanks to a volunteer crew this summer, all logs and materials are ready and waiting at the bridge sites!
This work will be physical, but definitely rewarding as the two bridges will vastly improve pedestrian access to Spectacle Lake, including an old horse stable and a frog call monitoring station.
Round up for 10 am each day at the Maintenance yard, #1300 Hewlett-Packard Lane. Bring work gloves (if you have them), comfortable footwear for hiking the trails, plenty of water and a lunch.
Overnight accommodation ($30/cabin) is available for volunteers wishing to incorporate a recreational visit with their families this weekend.
