Camp Mack Trail Work 11/1 & 11/8

This Sunday (11/1) we’ll meet at 10 am at the gravel lot inside the Camp.  Enter off 501 and head back until you see the lot on your left.  Bring long pants, long sleeves, and gloves.  SAMBA will provide snacks and H2O. Depending on how much we get done this week, we may hold another work day next Sunday (11/8) – we’ll meet once again at 10 am.  Same time, same place, bring the same stuff. My goal is that, after these two work days, we will have completely reopened and fine tunes North Valley Trail in its entirety....
