On May 10th and 11th Trails4Tomorrow will be going to Waiparous to work on bank restoration around the Meadow Creek bridge at the base of Camp Hill (aka the hill to nowhere). We need as many volunteers to help out as possible to make short work of this project so we can get it done before runoff begins. We will be driving on Lost Knife to the bridge to do the work and camping overnight on Saturday then completing the work on Sunday. Dinner will be provided by RMLCA Saturday night, though you will still need to bring your own plates and cutlery. You will also need to bring your own breakfasts and lunches, along with snacks and drinks for both days.
This work will take place rain or shine and it could be a bit muddy out there, so make sure to bring some rubber boots (steel toe if you have them), a couple pairs of good work gloves, rain gear, and a change of clothing including socks!
We're still working out some exact logistics so I'll post updates when we have more info. Hope to see you all out there!
If you plan on coming please also let us know if you'll be coming alone or how many people are coming with you. We need to get a count of volunteers so we know how much food to make Saturday night.
Please note that since we will be taking part of Lost Knife trail to get to the bridge that all the usual trail run requirements apply - recovery gear, vehicle recovery points, compressor, first aid kit, FRS radios, etc.
Tools to bring:
If you have any of this protective gear please bring it with you:
- steel toe boots
- hard hats
- high vis vests
- eye protection
- ear protection
Also DO NOT FORGET TO BRING PLENTY OF WATER. High energy snacks like trail mix, protein bars, and jerky are also a good idea to have with you.
