There will be a work detail this Sunday 10/19/14 to cut a new trail between Lawrence Road and Roosevelt Highway in Hilton. This is a big project and we’re looking for as many volunteers as possible. The project will consist of cutting/removing brush and downing a few small trees. If you have a chainsaw, brush cutter, or other tools that would assist with cutting brush/limbs, please bring them along. Also, bring along work gloves for moving brush.
We will meet Sunday morning 8am at TRS Pools in Hilton (at the corner of Route 18 and Sweden Walker Road). Once the group is together, we’ll drive around the corner to Lawrence Road which is the closest location to access this section of trail.
We expect to work from 8am to at least noon (depending on the progress made). Any amount of time you can volunteer would be greatly appreciated!! Please contact Don Belluscio (585-880-8299) or respond to this email if you have any specific questions about this project.
