Richmond MORE needs volunteers to finish Dogwood Dell

March 2, 2012 7:35am

Barring rain, volunteers from Richmond-MORE will be out at Dogwood Dell working to finish off the newest trails in Richmond. Want to help?

The hiking trail is just about wrapped up and some drains were cut in the grade reversals last week. The lower portions of the mountain bike trail still need some sprucing up though. Back slopes and down slopes need grading, some rocks need to be put in the trail and construction debris needs to be scattered. We only have a few weeks left to finish up Dogwood Dell before we need to move our efforts to Belle Island, so if it’s not pouring down rain on Saturday, come on out and lend a hand.

When: 9am Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Where: Pumphouse Drive across from Pumphouse Park

Bring: Water, Snack, Gloves
