Here comes the sun–at last (and with a vengeance)! We will have a workday this Saturday, Aug. 11 at 9 am to prune and trim the Rowcross Trail in Old Trail (directions below). We have another workday planned for Saturday, Aug. 25, meeting location TBD. Always be sure to bring water and wear sturdy shoes; tools are optional. A hat and bug repellent are also recommended!
We can’t believe fall is just around the corner. SAVE THE DATE for the 9th annual Crozet Trails Crew 5K trail race with Kids’ Run at 8 am on Saturday, October 6, the morning of the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival. We will need volunteers for Friday evening registration on 10/5, as well as Saturday morning from 7:30 to 9:30 amfor registration, setup, prize distribution, etc. Of course we also need runners/walkers/joggers–spread the word! This is the Trails Crew’s primary fundraiser of the year, so it’s a fun and healthy way to show your support. Registration link and volunteer signup genius will be posted next month.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, Aug. 23, 6:30 pm at Mi Rancho in the Old Trail Town Center. Beginning in September, we will move the meeting from the 4th to the third Thursday of each month, which will be Sept. 20.

Crozet Trails Crew www.crozettrailscrew.org
The Crozet Trails Crew welcomes volunteers of all activity levels, ages, and desired level of involvement. Workday volunteers must be over 18 years of age or else accompanied by their responsible adult. Please use your best judgment, or ask the workday leader, as to whether it’s an appropriate workday for dogs and small children. When joining the Crew for a workday, each participant is responsible for their own personal safety, the safety and behavior of their pets and children, and the choices they make while working as a team. Each volunteer assumes sole responsibility for any personal tools or equipment they bring, including their personal vehicles, power tools, hand tools, hiking gear, and any other personal gear that you bring.
