Good afternoon everyone,
Our next North Branch Canal Trail work day will be held this Thursday, 4/10, at 8:30am, meeting at the intersection of River Drive and Mt. Zion Drive in Cooper Township, Montour County. This will be our first mid-week work day. We will not be working next weekend, taking off for the opening of trout season. For those who have not joined us during the last few work days, our meeting location is roughly 2.5 miles east of the Danville Soccer Park or 4.5 miles west of the Catawissa Boat Club. Please look for my silver Toyota Tundra with a silver cap parked on the river side shoulder of the road. If you are able to join us, please plan to arrive between 8:15am and 8:30am 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 plan to work until roughly lunchtime.
Thursday’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.
The next work days, weather permitting, are tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, 4/16 or Thursday, 4/17, followed by Monday, 4/21. A confirmation of the date and more details will be emailed to everyone as we get closer to those dates.
If you have any questions or need more information, please email me at this address or call me at (570) 336-2060. Thank you for your interest in the North Branch Canal Trail project.
