SWTrails Work Party Saturday, August 3
August 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Saturday Aug 3 Work Party 9-12 at Bertha and Chestnut Drive, Raz Baack Crossing
Join us to backfill the gravel between the steps on the east side of the Raz Baack Crossing. Work will involve carrying in buckets or wheelbarrow as much as you are comfortable carrying, to replenish the settled areas between the steps on this important connection, spreading the gravel and compacting it with compaction tools. We will also be placing rocks along the sides of the steps to prevent the gravel from moving downhill.
Bring gloves, good shoes, and a willing spirit. This work party is open to all (children must be accompanied by a parent). Work as long as you feel comfortable. There is a SWTrails funded and installed drinking fountain at the site.
Park on SW Chestnut Drive to the east of Bertha Blvd.
Did you know this site is near the May, 1920 train wreck of the Red Electric Railroad? Two commuter trains collided on a single track.
