Graveling the Hill on the 30th Street Trail NOV 21

Graveling the Hill on the 30th Street Trail

Hey PT Trails Volunteers! The Non-Motorized Transportation Board (NMTAB) is sponsoring a work party next Saturday, November 21st, 9 am to noon, to spread gravel on 30th Street Trail between Holcomb and Gise Streets. This trail section was completed last January; but considering that the rainy season is here, graveling the hill is very important!
Best parking is along Gise between the 29th and 30th Street right-of-ways. There are no houses on the east side of this block, and it is on the uphill side of the project where the gravel pile is located. Please bring wheel barrows, shovels, rakes and good work gloves. Be sure to wear sturdy boots and dress for the weather, as we will work rain or shine to get this done. Hot beverages and snacks will be provided for all volunteers (under a tent, if needed). The arrow on the map shows the trail work site. For questions or more information, please contact Jolly Wahlstrom at jollywahlstrom@yahoo.com.
