Early this past Saturday over forty volunteers showed up at Wilder Ranch State Park for MBoSC’s first volunteer workday of the season. The focus of the day was to prep the trail corridor for the Enchanted Loop re-route and restoration project, a collaboration between MBoSC and the State Parks trail crew. After fueling up on coffee donated by Verve Coffee Roasters volunteer crews headed into the park to get busy. Volunteers hauled brush away from the new trail corridor and stashed it for later use in decommissioning the old route. Organic material was cleared from the new trail alignment in preparation for trail construction. These motivated folks accomplished an amazing amount of work, and even finished early!
After a hard day of working, tired but happy volunteers headed down to the parking lot for post workday snack and libations provided by Ninkasi Brewing. To top off the day Adventure Sports Journal kicked down some choice bits for our volunteer raffle, and a good number of people left sporting some new gear.
A big thanks to our sponsor Mick’s Automotive, our favorite full service Japanese auto repair shop, for keeping our hard working volunteers well fed and happy during the event. Mick’s has been a long time supporter of MBoSC and we are grateful for their continued support. Thanks to California State Parks and also to Trailworkers.org, for support in making this project and event happen.
We will be back in Wilder Ranch working on the Enchanted Loop Project on Sunday November 15th. Stay tuned for more info!
