SDSF Volunteer Trail Work Day #2 Recap, sponsored by Adventure Sports Journal
25 volunteers pitched in for trails this past Saturday December 22 at Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF). Crews worked on drainage and other maintenance issues on Ridge Trail and the existing flow trail segments.
Hospitality provided by California-based Adventure Sports Journal included a delicious lunch, post-workday snacks, and an array of raffle goodies. Whole Foods fueled volunteers with morning coffee and breakfast treats, and Ninkasi provided post-workday beverages. Summit Store contributed as usual by offering a deep discount on lunch. We appreciate Saturday’s hardworking crew and generous sponsors!
Volunteer involvement is crucial to completing the flow trail. Work days are scheduled twice a month (see Volunteer Trail Work Day Schedule), and include breakfast, lunch, and post-work day refreshments and volunteer raffle. All are welcome—no trail work experience required! Our supportive, experienced crew leaders and trail builders will teach you techniques and make a confident trail builder out of you in no time flat. Keep in mind that trail work days may be cancelled or rescheduled due to inclement weather and/or hazardous conditions.
The next SDSF Volunteer Trail Work Day is scheduled for Saturday, January 10 and is sponsored by Tread Bikes in Campbell. Mark your calendar and stay tuned for details!
