Work Day – January 16th!

What we’ll be doing

We’re going to be continuing work started earlier this year at the mouth of La Luz Canyon just northeast of La Luz (same place we worked on the previous work day in November)

  • We’ll be doing some work on the Clarke property and starting some work on the November property (we have trail easements in place with both of these property owners).
  • We will be doing tread clearing and repair, building water bars, water containment dikes, clearing culverts and similar important erosion control activities.

When/Where: Saturday, January 16th, 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!
