Trail Work Day 2020

Saturday, February 8, 2020

9:00am - 11:00am

You can count on a good time and good company while enjoying the best of an Oregon winter day and helping to improve our trails.

This year we’ll be working at the Marks Slough trail. We’ll pull weeds around the trees, remove ivy from some older trees, pile the debris and any trash near the trail so city crews can pick it up, and mulch at least a three foot circle around the younger trees.

Bring any or all of the following tools if you have them:

  • hoe
  • shovel (spade or scoop)
  • rake
  • garden fork
  • hand saw
  • pitchfork
  • wheelbarrow

Come celebrate a winter day and get those endorphins activated!
