Spring cleanup 2023

Mabel Lake Campground

The forecast for the Winter is plenty of snow up north so I'm moving this event to the second weekend in May so we don't have the same problem getting into the Mable Lake campground as 2022. We'll be working on making sure trails are cleared from fallen trees and clearing brush back. One big project is to work in an area east of Remer where about 40 trees fell. The Forest Service cleared the trail but had to reroute some of it, and it needs more work. I'll be showing up at the campground Thursday afternoon so anyone can join me at that time. Camping is free. Water might not be available at the campground but I'll have a filter if you need some. I'll feed everyone breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and supper Friday and Saturday nights. I believe it's also the Fishing opener weekend so I want to finish about noon on Sunday so we can beat the traffic home. Those coming from the Minneapolis area should be aware that there will probably be road construction in Elk River where traffic will be done to one lane in each direction.
