Work Day – Jan 24th!

It’s a new year and after taking December off we’re back in action with some NEW projects!

What we’ll be doing

To start the new year we’ll be working on two pieces of privately owned lands at the mouth of Labrocita Canyon just above La Luz.

The original railed runs through these two properties (we have easements in place with the owners of the land, so we’re all legal for public access) and we’ll be taking on the task of transforming the original rail bed into a usable hiking trail where needed. A lot of the rail bed is in pretty decent shape, but a lot is not. We have some major work ahead of us in the months to come. We’ll be coordinating with the city and Forest Service and, as always, the Forest Service will be providing us with support.

Be sure and bring your own drinking water, sun protection, work gloves and study boots.  As always there will be work for all skill level and ages.

When/Where: Saturday, January 24th, 2015. Meet at 9am and we’ll work until noon.
