Wolf River Trails Work Day, Saturday, June 18, 8 am

Wolf River Trails Work Day, Saturday, June 18

When: 8 am, Saturday, June 18 (work for ~3 hours)

What: Clearing privet and other brush from the Blue and Yellow trails between Walnut Grove Rd. and 5-points

Who: Anyone who wants to help improve the trails (especially those who use them regularly).

Where: Meet at Blue/Yellow trailhead at Walnut Grove Rd. overpass (turn off Walnut Grove Rd. and drive down dirt road to trailhead).

Why: Because the trails are in need of improvement. Some sections are almost impassible due to overgrowth and are unsafe.

How: MSTA has the infrastructure to conduct trail work days, by obtaining clearance from Shelby Farms Park and reporting to the Park on work progress and any problem areas.

Precautions:

- Wear long pants and long sleeves; there is lots of poison ivy.

- Bring and drink lots of water; temps will be 75 F early, rising to 85 F by 11 am.

What to bring: Hand saws, lopping shears, hedge trimmers, machetes, weed wackers—anything that will cut small brush and privet

About half of the Blue trail from Walnut Grove to 5-points was trimmed yesterday, and first section of the Yellow going north was mowed. Also, the trees on the Yellow between Walnut Grove and 5-points were cut this morning; Yellow is OPEN again.

The Blue from the Greenline is now clear, as also is the Yellow between Walnut Grove and the $1 million bridge.

Brad, please post 1 additional hour of MSTA train work.
