Hikshari’ Trail VTS Workday

September 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Greetings VTS gang;

Our September workday will be Saturday, September 10th, and we have a special project to complete. We will still meet at the usual place, at the end of Hilfiker lane, but I have arranged to have our yardwaste dumpster delivered to the south end of the Hikshari’ unit, at the Elk River park and ride.  There is a lot of fennel and blackberry at the trailhead there for us to cut and load into the dumpster. Anyone who is willing to volunteer to help with the effort will be welcome, but there will also be trash to pick up and other weedy spots to tend to if one wishes to focus on those tasks instead.

                This is a transitional time of year-heading into the fall there will be less weeding and watering to do, so we may be able to focus on some more large-scale trash abatement in the next few months. I will provide the group with more info on where we might focus those efforts once I get a chance to recon. and see where the cleanup sites are located. I’ll also try to coordinate with EPD if it looks like there are any security/safety concerns, so we can get some extra support from them.

I hope you all had an enjoyable and restorative Labor Day weekend! I am looking forward to seeing you this Saturday. Bring your work gloves, water, etc. if you have your own; I will provide bottled water and snacks as well.
