Purcell's Cove Trail Days: June 19th and 20th

Come lend a hand in the trail work happening at our Purcell’s Cove Conservation Lands on June 19th and 20th! No previous experience is required and our Trails Consultant will teach you the skill sets needed to lend a hand. The weekend will be fun and full of learning, but will require physical work, moving rocks and other natural materials.

If you’re a hiker, a mountain biker, or just appreciate a casual walk with the dogs, you know that well maintained trails add so much to the experience. There are a few parts of the trail towards Flat Lake that prove difficult to traverse and require restoration and maintenance. Trails don’t maintain themselves though, and as a charity we rely on volunteers to help keep the trails accessible to all who use them.

On both Saturday June 19th and Sunday June 20th we will be meeting at the trail head opposite Battery Lane on Purcell’s Cove Road at 9 am. We’ll work until 3 pm, with a noon time lunch break all together at Purcell’s Pond.

Plan on wearing sturdy boots, long trousers and bring work gloves if you have them. Pack a lunch and lots of water. We will be working with loppers, rakes and trail tools, so instruction on safe tool use will be provided.

If you have any questions or wish to express your interest in participating please send me a message. If you know of someone else who might be interested pass along my contact information.
