The Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail are starting the new year with some improvements near Daingerfield Island.
The volunteer organization, which does everything from clearing the trial to fixing bumps and other issues, is hosting an event on New Year’s Day. The work area is the trail on Daingerfield Island near 615 Slaters Lane.
This time, the work involves cleaning trash, clearing vegetation, and fixing several bumps in the trail.
For those that can’t make it in person, the organization is also raising funds to keep volunteers equipped with tools and supplies.
According to the event posting:
Volunteers may perform some of the following work:
- Using pruners and loppers to remove vegetation growing into the trail
- Using hand saws to cut tree branches
- Hauling away vegetation and fallen tree branches
- Picking up trash
What to Bring:
- Gloves (We’ll have some to borrow)
- Long sleeves and long pants
It took 5 volunteer to help move this huge limb at Belle Haven Park! 💪
