Please join PACCSA and Yellowjacket Ski Team member Matthew South for a work day at Laurel Ridge on Sunday, December 3rd beginning at 10:00 AM. The work will focus on completing Matthew’s Boy Scout Eagle Project: The new Red Loop Hill #1 Bypass.
Please meet up at the Warming Hut at 10:00 AM on Sunday, December 3rd. The goal will be to put the finishing touches on the new Hill #1 Bypass trail and to permanently close off the old bypass hill. Please make sure to wear hiking boots, dress appropriately for the weather, and wear work gloves and bright colored clothing (since it’s hunting season). If you have them, please bring shovels, pry bars and/or breaker bars.
The work site is 1.5 miles up the Red Loop, so you must be able to hike at least 3 miles to participate in this project. In addition, if you are not already signed up as a DCNR Conservation Volunteer, you must sign up in advance by clicking here.
Matthew will be providing donuts for breakfast, snacks and water at the worksite, and a weinie-roast lunch at 1:30 PM. If you have any kids who need Community Service Hours, this is a great opportunity! See you all on December 3rd!!
A big thanks to all of the volunteers who helped Matthew with this project in August, and to DCNR, which helped Matthew in the fall with the “heavy equipment” portion of the project!
