Saturday, March 31, 9:00 a.m. — Work day to extend the Creekside Trail from Birchwood Hill Road to Jarman’s Gap Road. Meet on Birchwood Hill Road between Birmingham Drive and Welbourne Lane in Old Trail. Be prepared to clear grass, bushes, and tree limbs, and to use rake and shovel to even out the trail. Bring your own tools or use ours. Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes and gloves, and bring water. Hats, sunscreen, and insect repellent are recommended.
Directions: from Old Trail Drive heading south, pass the first traffic circle then take the first right on Welbourne Lane. Follow it to the end, where it meets Birchwood Hill Road in a “T” intersection. Turn left and park along the road.
