Our next North Branch Canal Trail work day will be held tomorrow morning, Saturday 3/22, at 9:00am, meeting at the intersection of River Drive and Mt. Zion Drive in Cooper Township, Montour County. This location is roughly 2.5 miles east of the Danville Soccer Park or 4.5 miles west of the Catawissa Boat Club (please see map below). Please look for my silver Toyota Tundra with a silver cap parked on the river side shoulder of the road. Please plan to arrive between 8:45am and 9:00am tomorrow if possible so that we can walk together to the day’s work site. Please remember, we will be parking and walking near private property, so it is very important we respect the neighboring landowners’ properties. We will work until no later than 1:00pm.
Tomorrow’s work will involve woody debris and small tree clearing along the trail corridor. No earthmoving work of any kind will be done, so shovels, picks and other similar tools are not needed, though pruning shears and tools of that nature may be useful. 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.
Weather permitting, the next work day is scheduled for Saturday, March 29th, from 9am – 1pm. After that, we’ll be doing a work day at the Hess Recreation Area in Danville on Saturday, April 5th, from 9am – 11am and then taking off the weekend of April 12/13 for the opening weekend of trout
