Northside Trail Clearing Volunteer Event

Sat, December 10th, 2022, 9:00am

On December 10th, we'll be clearing the Northside Trail of invasive species, such as buckthorn and honeysuckle. We'll possibly even uncover new walking, hiking and biking trails for public use!


All workdays start at 9:00 am and end at noon. Volunteers are encouraged to participate the entire time, but we'll take all help we can get! Stay as long as you're able.
