September Work Party this Saturday

Hey Folks-

We will have our monthly work party out at Sope this Saturday. We will meet up to partner with the Coca Cola Company for their annual work party. Both groups will be working on the new Creek Reroute doing finishing work. As always, bring water, snacks, and gloves and wear long pants and closed toed shoes. Bring an Epi-pen if you are allergic to bees and wear a (breathable) long sleeved shirt if you get poison ivy.

We will meet at 8:00 A.M. at the Powers Island parking lot to sign in, have a quick breakfast, and catch a shuttle over to the work site.  Please respond in the comment field of this Facebook post if you plan to attend- https://www.facebook.com/permalink.phpstory_fbid=10154615479575788&id=355177060787 .

As always, thanks for your stewardship and we look forward to seeing you there!

Work Party a success!

Thanks to all who came out for last Saturday's corridor clearing work party! We had folks from multiple chapters of SORBA, Sorella Cycling, The Greening Youth Foundation, the Youth Conservation Corps, and of course the National Park Service. We have the corridor clear and will now wait for the machines to do the building. We will post information on future work parties for the finishing work on the new reroute when the time comes. Keep coming back and we will keep you posted!

Work Party this Saturday 8:00 A.M. Columns Drive

Our monthly work party will be a corridor cleaning job for a half a mile reroute around the creek section just off the fitness loop. Most of you know that this route is usually a mud hole and unsustainable. The original plan of the redesign of Sope Creek included a bypass of this section, but it never was built. We have reestablished the original flag line and will be cleaning the corridor with the NPS this weekend to prepare for the machines that will build the trail in two weeks. We will meet at the Columns Drive parking lot this Saturday morning at 8 A.M. Please come and wear long pants, closed toed boots, bring water and snacks. Be prepared to hike. If you have loppers or a bow saw bring those along as well. We will provide bagels in the morning and look forward to seeing you there!
