Lakeshore Park Trail Day April 10th 9 am

Postby froggyrider » April 3rd, 2010, 6:08 pm

From the Lakeshore TC's:

Spring Cleanup trail day at Lakeshore Park

When: Saturday, April 10th, starting at 9:00 am

Where: Meet at the MMBA Metro South Trailer by the trailhead

We?ve got lots of projects lined up this year:
Tidy up the trail, minor trimming
Bridge replacement on Lost Loop
Bridge repairs
Log pile rebuilds
Berm building
Rock gardening
Pump track tweaking
Signposting
Crater area enhancements

What to bring: We have some basics in the trailer, but we expect a big turnout. Bringing shovels, pry bars (for moving rocks), hand saws for pruning and log pile building, and so forth would be appreciated. Bridge work requires that a few people work in the stream ? waders or tall boots might be a good idea if you?re up for that. A cordless drill or two might be put to good use.

Who: Anyone is welcome. MMBA membership not required. As before, the City of Novi rewards 16 hours of work before Memorial Day with a free annual pass to the park, and this day makes an excellent start at that. If you love the trail, come help make it even better!

Bagels and lunch provided!
