Join Connecticut Forest & Park Association for our annual trail maintainer spring workshop. The workshop will be held in Berlin, CT at Bicentennial Park at the end of Winesap Rd.
Learn the basics of hiking trail design and maintenance while working side-by-side with seasoned trail volunteers. Projects will include two-log bridge building, water bar and check dam construction, boardwalk construction, trail building, brushing, blazing, and safe tool usage. We will also construct a 30’ bridge using utility poles.
Everyone is welcome. Please bring water, lunch, work gloves and dress appropriately for outdoor work. Tools will be provided.
Rain date is Sunday, April 25th. To register, call CFPA at 860-346-2372 or email email@example.com. For further information contact workshop leader Bob Nodine by calling 860-621-5849 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
