Boston Lot Trail Maintenance Request

  • June 8, 2014 · 11:00 AM

Hi there,
Would you mind sharing the following information with the UV Running Group please.
  A few runners have asked if they can join in to help with work days on the Boston Lot/Landmark trails.  UVMBA is having a work day on Sunday June 8th.  No experience is necessary.  If you do have experience with trail maintenance and wish to lead a group that would be very helpful but is not essential.  Even if you cannot make it, if you have thoughts about areas that you think need some work, we are open to ideas from everyone.  We'll have a more formal plan in the upcoming weeks once we get a sense of who is going to participate.  You can sign up on the UVMBA homepage under 'events' or you can email me directly.  Depending on the number of volunteers we will likely split into groups of 4 or 5 and work on various sections throughout the network.  The focus on this particular day will be to armor and/or drain sections of trail that are frequently muddy and eroding.  More information will be forthcoming soon.  Hopefully this day will be the beginning of a long collaborative partnership between various groups in the community who use these trails.  Please get in touch if you are interested or have questions. Thank you.

    I got the email. I hope to be there tomorrow on time, but a possiblity of being a tad late. I'll find the group. Bringing a shovel and lopers. I live on Mt Support road and have a garden and I have to tell you, the mosquitoes in the daytime are like I've never seen! Like DAve I'm wearing a long sleeve and a scad of bug spray. It'll be hot ..bring some h2o

    I just did some trail maintenance at D Acres last weekend. I have lopers that can be used to snip branches and small trees extending into the trail and/or obscuring site lines to the trail blazes/markers. I still haven't seen where we are meeting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
