Help the Crozet Trails Crew this Weekend

The work of the Crozet Trails Crew is truly one of the Crozet’s great assets*

and this weekend provides a great opportunity to help maintain the trail and meet some of your neighbors!

This Saturday is an all-hands-on-deck workday at Crozet Park. There will be several projects going on, but the CTC will be working to clear mass amounts of weedy, viney vegetation from the area adjacent to the trail near the lower baseball field. The workday is 8am-4pm, but I suspect the Crew will mainly be working 9am-12 or 1pm. If anyone wants to come for a later shift, let me know and we’ll make sure to overlap some. wear long pants and long sleeves. If you know you are going to come, (lunch) is provided if you register here.

The Spring Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival is scheduled for May 10-11– The Crozet Trails Crew has been asked to assist with Friday evening set-up (May 9) and Sunday evening clean up (May 11). Please see if those spots work for you. If not, please sign up for something else; there are many fun options! You can volunteer at Sign-Up Genius.


Crozet Running is putting on a FREE (yes, you read that right) 5k Trail Run at Mint Springs and have asked the Crozet Trails Crew to support this event by providing volunteers. See the website with registration AND the volunteer sign up.
