The North Branch Canal Trail work day scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday) is cancelled. Because we are raking, seeding and spreading straw, we’ll need to wait a day for the trail to dry out from tonight’s rain. Our next and final work day for the near future will be this Thursday, October 9th, from 8:30am – 2:15pm.
Please remember that we will be parking at the temporary trailhead along River Drive in Mahoning Township, roughly one mile east of the Danville Soccer Park, immediately before the North Shore Railroad crossing.
Volunteers are asked to bring the following items if possible:
· Garden rakes
· Pruning shears
All volunteers should wear sturdy work boots, long (briar resistant) pants and work gloves. Poison ivy is terribly abundant along this portion of the trail corridor, so please prepare accordingly. As before, 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 have any questions or need additional information, please call me at (570) 336-2060 or email me at MontrRec@ptd.net. Thank you.
