Wharf Trail VTS Workday
Sun., August 1
 , 9-11
Meet: on Waterfront Drive (Railroad Ave.) behind Costco in Eureka at 9 am.
 
Look for the Volunteer Trail Stewards Sign.
 
For our August 1st Wharf Trail VTS Workday we will focus on removing rocks, chunks of wood and debris from the recently-graded area along the trail. Litter pick-up is always needed, and there is stll lots of broken glass that could be picked up.
The August 1st Workday we will be picking-up large rocks, chunks of wood, and metal scraps so the area can be mowed without damaging the mower. The City of Eureka has agreed to provide a riding lawn mower for VTS to use on the Wharf Trail. Thank You, City of Eureka! There are also two lengths of railroad track that need to be buried. Broken glass is scattered throughout the area and there may be other litter. Digging of fennel and blackberry roots is another welcomed task.
