We are going to learn about proper box step construction. There are existing steps on the trail system that have been damaged and need replacing. We will be demonstrating proper installation techniques through an onsite project.
We will start from the nature center and hike our way through the trail system. Total distance will depend on the amount of time it takes to haul materials to the site and do the required work. Total distance will not exceed 2 miles.
What to expect:
There will be a learning session in the morning, followed by bringing materials to site, and demonstrating installation. Since the area is small, we can offer for participants to hang around to finish off work or depart after the morning session.
What to bring:
What to wear:
Take I-5 to SW Terwilliger Blvd. Head east on SW Terwilliger Blvd until you see the Tryon Creek Natural Area on the right (aprox. 2.5 miles). Find parking near the nature center.
