Trail Notes - March 2018

Hi folks -

The recent fires impacted our parks and generated a huge interest in
volunteering to help restore and repair our parks and trails.

Are you interested in volunteering and want to know what to expect?

We meet at 9 a.m. on a weekends at one of our local parks. We ask that
people wear sturdy shoes or boots, long pants, and bring work gloves and
water you can carry with you when we hike into our trail work project.
Wear clothing that can get dirty and is suitable for the season.

Our projects are varied but always have some physical effort involved.
We try to provide a wide variety of tasks suitable for young and old,
big and small.

We wrap up around 12:30 or so and return to the starting point to enjoy
a few minutes of relaxation with snacks and a Lagunitas or Guayaki cold
drink - name drop intentional - these are great local companies who
provide beverages for our trail work events.

And on the topic of sponsors and supporters, I want to share with you
some great news for our trails in Sonoma County:

Kenwood Vineyards also wants to help Sonoma County recover from the
fires and help repair and restore our trails. To make that happen they
have made a substantial donation. Kenwood Vineyards is our Official
Sonoma County Trails Council Partner for 2018. This donation allows the
Trails Council to organize dozens of trail work events in fire-damaged
parks. It also enables additional maintenance and trail construction at
other local parks.

The support also allows the Trails Council to invest in our own vehicles
and new trailers. This gives us the ability to mobilize two events on the
same day, multiplying the good work volunteers can do for our parks.

Sign up for email alerts about upcoming volunteer events. We send a
notice about a week before each trail event with details.

Thanks for reading,

Ken Wells
