Quarry Trail Needs You! – Sunday July 27 – 8am

IMG_20140724_145316Last Wednesday’s storm knocked many trees down on Quarry trail and while most of the trees have been cleared some of their root balls destroyed significant portions of the trail. We’d love some help re-constructing the trail on Sunday morning so if you have some time and energy please come give a hand.

When: 8am Sunday July 27th – Hopefully we can wrap it up by 1pm.

Where: Meet at the Kiosk on Mt. Begbie Rd so we can access Quarry from the lower entrance.

What to bring: water, food, sturdy boots, appropriate clothing for working in the weather, gloves, we will supply tools.
