Short Description: Family-friendly Day event for people of all ages.
Long Description: This event is family friendly, we will have volunteer work available for all ages. Experienced crew leaders will train volunteers in general trail maintenance techniques and safe usage of hand tools. This project will provide the public a safe and unimpeded passage through the trail system the Foothill Conservancy has created. The work will include contouring portions of the path, and building earthen water bars for erosion control, if needed. Materials such as dead brush may be dragged to the site to help break the visual line of the path. The goal of this project is to maintain 3-5 miles of trail. There is no charge for this event, Although we receive grant money for these trips it is often not enough to cover operating costs. Please consider making a tax deductible donation online or bringing a donation to the event. More detailed information will be sent to you after you sign up.
Work Activities: This project will allow the public safe and unimpeded passage to the trail. The work will include contouring portions of the path, and building earthen water bars for erosion control. Materials such as dead brush may be dragged to the site to help break the visual line of the path. Most trail reconstruction will consist of hand work. This will include construction of stairs, rebuilding of the trail bed, construction of water bars, bucking of down trees, brushing of overgrown portions of the trail, and other standard trail construction needs dictated by the lay of the trail.
