We will meet at 9AM and Work til Noon (Thursday Nov 5th). Gloves and tools are provided by Parks, wear work cloths and bring some rain protection. We would love to have you join us and help keep this park in good shape for winter walking and hiking.

Last month during the Parke a Diem event SW Trails worked with PPR and did a new re-routing of the trail at the West end of the Foley-Balmer Natural Area the improvements make walking far less steep and slippery that the previous route. If you get a chance walk on over and give it a walk. Also this months Nov 14th Walk with go through that area if you want to join us.
