Last Work Party of the Year this Saturday!! Could be a Rainout, so check status before you come!!

Hey Folks- Our last work party of the year is scheduled for this Saturday at 9 A.M. We will be meeting at Columns Drive parking lot and have some rock armoring planned. Weather is not looking great for Saturday, so it may be a rainout. We will be posting here on Facebook, Twitter (@SORBAAtlanta) and here if it is a GO/NO GO. RSVP here in the comment field if you plan to come and we will keep you posted on the weather.

Remember, if you need any info on our events, there is a calendar here, with all our meetings and work parties. More importantly, there is a twitter feed @SORBAAtlanta, that will let you know if the trail is open/closed for riding due to Rain or Freeze/Thaw conditions. This feed is linked to the website and to our Facebook page. If you have any specific questions on volunteering or Sope Creek, please contact sorbabrett@gmail.com. Thanks!!

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!
