See note at the bottom of the page:
The North Branch Canal Trail work day scheduled for this afternoon from 1:00pm – 4:30pm will go on as planned. Though cold, the weather forecast seems to be okay. If you are able to join us today, please just make sure you dress appropriately. As we have in the past, we will be meeting at the temporary trailhead along River Road in Mahoning Township, roughly one mile east of the Danville Area Soccer Park. Please look for my silver Toyota Tundra with a silver cap parked on the river side of the road, immediately before the railroad grade crossing.
Today’s work will involve briar and small tree clearing along the trail corridor. No earthmoving work of any kind will be done, so shovels, picks and other tools are not needed. Volunteers should wear sturdy work boots, heavy-duty (briar resistant) clothing and work gloves. Only MARC staff and veteran trail crew volunteers will be permitted to operate chainsaws or other power equipment. All volunteers will be required to sign liability waivers before beginning any work. Because trail conditions are still very rough, we ask that children not attend this session. Additionally, because of the legal agreement governing trail construction and access, please understand volunteers may only be on site during the times listed above, in the presence of MARC representatives. The trail corridor remains closed to public access until further notice.
If you are unable to join us today, the next work day will be held next Saturday, February 1st, from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The details for that work day will be the same as for today.
