Volunteers are needed for "Build a Trail Day" from 12 to 4 pm on Saturday, October 19 in Whitpain Township's Wentz Run Park. The trail will connect the park to Union Meeting Road to the benefit of our community. Most of that distance is on Township property, as you can see on this map. (Map: Wentz Run Park Nature Trail Extension).
This follows up on the December 2012 effort shown in this video. AARC volunteers that day were fantastic! We need to keep working to extend the trail to benefit runners and walkers.
Volunteers will help to clear brush and limbs, line the trail with fallen logs, spread wood chips, and fill ruts and holes with gravel or dirt. Bring your own lopping shears, yard rakes, shovels, wheel barrows and gloves. We are also looking for volunteers with carpentry skills to help build a temporary bridge.
This will be a "shovel ready" day with the potential to make a big difference in the walkability of Whitpain Township for families and employees in local businesses. Please help us spread the word -- and the wood chips !
This event is sponsored by the Whitpain Township Park & Open Space Board. If you can volunteer, please call or text or email me. Tax-deductible donations, and contributions of snacks and drinks for the workers would also be appreciated.
