Morris Creek Workday with the USFS

September 29 is National Public Lands Day, and we will celebrate with a cooperative workday with the Forest Service on the Morris Creek trail in Lightning Creek. Come help rebuild the tread along the lower part of the trail that was washed out in the 2006 floods. This will be an all-day event. Bring lunch, gloves, and water. Please wear long pants and stout shoes or work boots. This is the last of our trail project days for the 2012 summer season.
