Tahoe Donner Trails Day: Saturday, June 23, 2012

The first volunteer opportunity of the season is coming up on Saturday, June 23rd. Please see the information below.

Tahoe Donner’s annual volunteer trail work day is coming up. This year we are offering two projects for interested members:

Project 1 – Trail Construction to improve access to the trail network from Hillside Drive. We will be constructing a new trail to connect Hillside Drive with trail section 6A-7A. There is an existing trail that will be decommissioned and rerouted on to higher ground. This project will require digging, heavy lifting and use of hand tools.

Project 2 – Trash Removal and Vegetation Trimming on the Nature Loop along Northwoods Blvd. The Nature Loop needs a spruce up; one of the most heavily used trails in TD it receives a lot of trash from the road. This project will be better for families with small kids or anyone requiring lighter duty. We hope to cover the length of the Nature Loop from the clubhouse to the driving range.

Tahoe Donner will provide a boxed lunch to all volunteers (vegetarian and meat available). Also a free T-shirt will be given to all volunteers. For these reasons, please RSVP with Sarah Collamer, Trails Steward, at scollamer@tahoedonner.com or (530) 587-9432.
