Foxboro State Forest Trail Work!!

FYI - South East Massachusetts NEMBA is doing some much needed trail work in Foxboro!

On Sunday April 25, 2010 SEMASS NEMBA will be holding our fourth 2010 Spring Trail Maintenance day in F. Gilbert Hills State Forest in Foxboro.

The projects we are planning to do have been approved by the DCR Park Management.

All volunteers who attend, will be eligible for the TREK BICYCLES drawing held at the end of the season!

The funding for materials we will use for this project are all from the Foxboro MBAS ride we held last summer (2009).

Meeting Location/Sign In:

We will meet at the Mill Street Dirt Parking lot at 8:30 AM across from the headquarters building. There is parking here and next-door at the Foxboro Community Center. Volunteers can come early to sign in and have a cup of coffee care of SEMASS NEMBA.

Start Time: Work will start at 9AM.

Project Over-view: Sunday's work will include work in two separate areas of the park (depending on volunteer turnout). The 1st major trail work site is a 10 minute walk from the Mill Street Parking lot. Our (2) projects include constructing a large bridge on one very wet trail, and a re-route & closure of an eroding portion of trail in a different section of the park. SEMASS NEMBA will provide lunch FREE for all volunteers.

Estimated Project Time:
We expect both projects to take 4+ hours to complete. We may have a group ride after the trail day, but this is weather and or time dependent. Bring your bike & riding clothes JUST IN CASE!

What to Bring/Wear:
Please bring water, work gloves, & bug spray. The bridge work will be in a muddy section of trail, we recommend long pants and work boots.

Weather/Cancellation Notice:

We'll try to work on Sunday regardless of the weather conditions. If inclement weather such as heavy rain or storms come through, please check www.semassnemba.org for updates/cancellations.

Tools: SEMASS NEMBA will provide tools for all of the work being performed. If you have your own personal tools you rather work with, feel free to bring them, but you are responsible for your own property.
