Volunteer opportunity on Buttermilk Trail

This is a bit short notice, but if you’re a user of Richmond’s urban trail system and you want to get your hands dirty this weekend, here’s a good opportunity to give back.

This Saturday, October 19th, trail work will continue on the muddy section on Buttermilk Trail between 22nd St. and Reedy Creek.  We will meet at the 22nd St. parking lot at 9am and walk west from there to the work site.

Debris has been cleared out, so now work can start on armoring the section of trail to keep it from staying muddy long after the rest of the trail has dried out.  The city trail-care crew has been staging rock there this week. The armoring should take two weeks to complete, so if you can’t come out this week,  there will likely be a work opportunity on the 26th as well.

When: 9am Saturday, October 19th

Where: 22nd St. Parking Lot off of Riverside Drive. Walk west on Buttermilk from there.

Bring: Water, Snack, Gloves

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
