Trail Clean Up: May 5, 2018

How about volunteering for an hour or so during the Manhan Rail Trail Clean Up, Saturday, May 5, 2018 any time between 8:00 and 11:00 AM.   We will meet at the mural (where the trail crosses Payson Ave.) and spread out from there as needed, depending on how many volunteers we get.

If you have them, please bring a shovel, rake, clippers, loppers and garden or work gloves.  Don’t forget water and sunscreen if it’s hot and sunny.

It’s a great way to get to know other trail users and help keep the bike path looking nice!
