Work Day – November 21st!

What we’ll be doing

We’re going to be continuing work started earlier this year at the mouth of Labrocita Canyon just northeast of La Luz.

  • There’s been heavy grass growth almost everywhere we worked last spring. This growth is obstructing water flow and foot traffic in many places and needs to be cleared out.
  • Some of our water-bars need to be reworked.
  • There are a few places where water has washed out our containment dikes and is damaging the trail again. We’ll focus some effort on repairing these areas.

When/Where: Saturday, November 21st, 2015. Meet at 9am and we’ll work until noon.

Again, we will have shirts and caps with the NEW NM Rails-to-Trails Association logo on sale when we gather up!
