Ainsworth / Trail 400 Trail Work Party

June 5 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Hello Fellow Volunteers!


For the June 5 Ainsworth SP Trail party we are working on tread near the campgorund.


Looks like we could have a possibly warm dry day tomorrow on the trail. Or not, so be prepared with rain gear.   And the temps are forecasted to get to the low 70’s, good spring weather for our party! Not too hot.


There will be lots of weeds to remove that are growing in the rocky tread. And hinges to define. This will be a fun party! We will need to take lots of breaks tomorrow. Bring plenty of water.


If you are able to get to the trailhead by 8:15 AM it would be greatly appreciated so we can carpool out along the bike path and have our safety talk and get started with our party.


Please let me know by calling or texting if you will be late or not able to attend.


Please consider indicating an interest in carpooling when you register, or carpooling with someone you know. Parking spaces are limited.


Thanks!

 What to expect:


You should expect to work in a fire-affected zone over uneven terrain, with many obstacles to climb over and/or remove.  While the area is generally flat, without significant potential for slides or rock falls, it is still relatively hazardous so soon after the fire.  A detailed safety discussion will be held before work begins.


What to bring:


Bring your lunch, snacks and plenty of water.


An extra set of clothes to change into at the end of the day is a good idea, as we will be working in a sooty, potentially muddy area.


What to wear:



  • Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)

  • Sturdy work gloves (more than one pair is a good idea)

  • Long sleeved shirts required

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

  • Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)

  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses


Directions:  


Directions to the worksite will be provided to registered volunteers no later than 12 hours prior to the work party date, along with any other necessary information.
