Greetings Trail Volunteers -
On Saturday, November 5, you have the opportunity to join hundreds of volunteers around the SF Bay on the 9th annual Ridge Trail Day to celebrate and give back to the Bay Area Ridge Trail.
This annual event is organized by the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council with over a dozen trail work events around the Bay Area.
The Sonoma County Trails Council will work on the East Slope Ridge Trail on Sonoma Mountain to remove slough, berm and weeds. There's no minimum age, but volunteers must be able to hike several miles with tools. Project hours are 9:00am-3:00pm and volunteers must be available for the entire project due to a shuttle to the work site.
We have limited space and this event will fill up so register early at the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council web site:
and select the Glen Ellen - Jack London State Historic Park for the East Slope project.
This volunteer work day will conclude with prizes from REI, an assortment of beverages (including Lagunitas) and a lunch from Chipotle Mexican Grill.
No experience necessary - we have tools and trained crew leaders.
We recommend you dress in layers for changing weather, in clothes you can get dirty; bring gloves, sturdy closed-toe shoes, long sleeved shirt and pants, hats, possibly rain gear or sunscreen.
Please bring and a full water bottle you can carry with you.
Meeting location details will be provided when you register at the Ridge Trail website.
