Two volunteer opportunities on the Buttermilk Saturday

From Richmond MORE:

This Saturday 3-12-11 we will be meeting at Reedy Creek at 9am again and will have one small crew head over to the board walk section of Buttermilk to finish up some small work while a much larger crew heads along Buttermilk East (that’s leaving Reedy Creek and heading down the “other” Buttermilk trail towards the Nickel Bridge/Dog park) over towards the “Red Clay Hill.” For those of you not familiar with the “Red Clay Hill” section this is the section of trail that also has the small pedestrian staircase and wooden ramp with the bricks in the center. The guys will be working on a short re-route in that are to help reduce some erosion problems. Nathan expects that the re-route will take upwards of 3-4 Saturdays’ worth of trail work. We can shorten that time frame with more volunteers and hands in the mix.

The weather is supposed to be nice and sunny so we suggest bringing your bike along for a nice loop of the park’s trails after a trail work session.

  • What: Buttermilk East Re-Route work part 1.
  • When: Saturday 3-12-11 starting at 9am ending..? Come out for as long as you like.
  • Where: Park in the Reedy Creek parking lot just off of Riverside Drive and Nathan will divide up the groups in the morning. If you like to sleep in a bit then go ahead and park at Reedy and walk West along Buttermilk East (Towards the Nickel Bridge/Dog Park) and come on over to “Red Clay Hill” to catch up with the crew.
  • Bring: Gloves, work boots or shoes, water or coffee (if that’s your thing), a small snack to keep the blood sugar in check and an open mind.
