Hi folks, there has been some favorable responses to the proposed Adopt-A-Trail suggestion. Kind of puts a little pride in ownership of the trails that we have.
How it would work is this:
Contact the Trail Boss for whichever trail system that you want to help out with.
Bob Wilcox - Croom
Ken Orlando/Joe Rutherford - Morris Bridge
Art North - Alafia
Tim Gustafson/Garry Rosseter - Boyette
Let them know when you can trim, where, and how much time spent so we can track what needs to be done and the hours. The volunteer hours help the land managers.
This will ONLY INVOLVE TRIMMING of the over growth in the trails. Remember to throw the trail trimmings well off the trail itself.
No altering of trails or other extensive work; we are trying to make that what we focus the scheduled workdays for. This will free up time to make our trails better and better.
You are not limited to just one trail system or just one section. One month you may wish to ride and trim Croom, while the next you may wish to ride and trim Morris Bridge, or Boyette, or Alafia. Whichever one needs the most help.
Since there have been folks who say they cannot make the Saturday workdays - here’s a chance to help out with the trails on a day and time that is convenient to the individual. Plus, you get to ride your bike too! Ride a little; trim a little. It only takes a few hours of your free time.
So, let me know if you would like to help out and we can this started.
Also, the deadline for annual hours recognized is by the FTF, so if you need to make your 20 hours there are only a few workdays left until then.
