SW Trails monthly first Thursday Work Party for August 2nd 2018 will be on the 4T trail over at Patton Rd and Humphrey Blvd from 9AM until Noon. This is the section of the trail that goes down and over to ZOO but we are meeting up on the Patton St side this time. Parking is hard to come by over here so car pool if you can or take bus 51. There is parking a couple of blocks away on side streets, so maybe be a bit early to find a spot if you drive. Activities for this work party will include cleaning up the trails, brushing, step replacement work, a section of trail rerouting and some trail armoring. It might be cooler on Thursday and this work is in the shade of trees and on the North slope of the hill. Remember every first Thursday of the month now through December SW Trails is in a Park somewhere working on a trail, join us or stop by and say hi.
As always our work is guided by the Portland Parks Lands Stewardship folks. and Parks will bring all the tools, gloves, and materials we need, and also, coffee, snacks, water, and usually some fruit. On these work parties it is not necessary to stay for the whole event and you can work at whatever level your skill and energy allows. It is just great to meet the neighbors and get a little trail work in.
