Anyone who has walked or biked along the Mount Vernon Trail is familiar with a few of its scary parts — places where cyclists or runners round corners without having a clear view of what’s on the other side.
Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail is looking for some help clearing up vegetation around one of those spots: the area just north of Old Town but south of Daingerfield Island where two parts of the trail converge.
The clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, June 5, from 9-11 a.m, at 615 Slaters Lane. Volunteers can register online.
The organization said the spot is a “high crash corner” in part due to the vegetation.
“Volunteers are needed to assist with cutting, pulling, bagging and removing vegetation,” the organization said. “No special skills are needed. We’ll teach you how to help in just a few minutes.”
The organization said helpers should bring sunscreen, water to drink, and a face covering. It would be helpful if attendees brought their own pruners and work gloves, but Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail said some will be available.
Is someone coming around this corner? We're looking for 20 more volunteers this Saturday to remove the vegetation blocking the sight line at this high crash corner in Alexandria. Sign up at https://t.co/Ba9Zrdfit5 pic.twitter.com/iJOpaxnBvL
