Greetings trail volunteers -

The Trails Council is building the Sonoma Mountain’s new East Slope Ridge Trail, and things are moving quickly now.  Ken and I surely could use your help!

We have scheduled trail work days for Thursday, August 28 and Sunday, August 31.  We’d be happy to have your help on either day.

We will meet at 9am at the Valley of the Moon Riding Club, 1005 Verano Avenue in El Verano.  It’s just about a block west of Arnold Drive.  We will carpool to the work site and work until about 2 pm.

Our work will consist of cutting and raking brush and cutting up branches from a fallen tree.  Cutting the brush will involve some exposure to poison oak, but if you are sensitive to poison oak you can work on the tree branches instead.  Bring a daypack with lunch and water, gloves, a hat, and sunscreen.  Wear long pants and boots or sturdy shoes.

No experience necessary – we have tools and trained crew leaders.

In order to make sure we have enough tools and beverages please reply to if you plan to attend.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
