Dear Incredible and Wonderful Volunteers,
I hope that this email finds you well and enjoying your summer but, perhaps, with enough time to join us on Saturday, July 24 for the next Trail Steward work day.
The focus of the upcoming workday (again, Saturday, July 24th) will be the trails in the Shay Park area (see my map). Everything is growing. As usual, we’ll start at 9 am and end around noon. There is trash to pick up, brushing back the main paved trail and the unpaved park trails, lopper/pruner/handsaw work, etc. There is lots to be done and a variety of tasks so that you can pick your level of comfort.
Parking can be limited so if you have the ability to walk or bike to the work day, so much the better. With HSU not in session, it should not be too impacted. The Humboldt Trails Council has lifted the cap on the number of volunteers we can have at work days so there is no need to RSVP. However, we will still require masks and social distancing if you are not vaccinated (please get vaccinated . . . all of the hospitalizations in Humboldt County have been people who have not been vaccinated). I will provide packaged snacks, have hand sanitizer, and have my usual supply of gloves.I would encourage you to bring water. Of course, don’t attend if you are not feeling well.
I hope to see many of you on the 24th! Thanks! Questions welcome . . .
