Saturday, February 7, Jamison Mill Trail Building

Join the Corps of Engineers and local volunteers this Saturday, February 7, at Jamison Mill Park at 9 a.m. for some trail building. Work days are typically scheduled for the first Saturday of every month. This time we will have two SK 500 mini-skid steer trail building machines on hand to continue where we left off a month ago. Volunteers will begin working at 9 a.m. and conclude around 1 p.m.

Also, Henry County Bike Club President, Tommy Smith, will lead a road bike ride at 2 p.m. starting at Jamison Mill Park after we are finished working.

Remember to bring your lunch along with snacks and water. Some snacks and drinks will be provided by the Friends of Philpott. We will be doing a significant amount of corridor clearing so leaf blowers are very much appreciated. Dress appropriately, with sturdy leather shoes and gloves. Hard hat and eye protection recommended.

Contact Mary Lawson at (276) 629-4512 ext. 227 or Linda Drage at (276)681-6805 if you're interested in volunteering.
