FC NEMBA Trail Day @ WIlton Woods

Date

4/13/19 8:45am

Wilton Woods Trail Day

WW riders, please join us! Lunch will be provided and bring you bike and we can get a ride in afterwards.

The project is pretty cool - we are moving an existing bridge (never done that before) about 75 feet up stream; rerouting part of Blue and Orange trails, and performing remediation of the old trail.

Meeting at BOULDER BROOK Road lot 8:45am, get moving by 9am. We'll be done by 1:00 and a ride will follow.

FC NEMBA will provide tools!.

Bring work gloves, water, bug spray, sturdy work boots. If you have some type of wader that will be a plus as we will be standing in the stream to move the bridge.

Let us know if you can join, so I can get a head count.  You can follow this event on tnhis Facebook Page.

Need to stack cars 2 deep at Boulder Brook, no parking allowed around the center island. It is a real short walk from that lot to the work site.

Thank you!

You do not have to be a member of NEMBA to help out at this event.  You just have to love WW as much as we do.
