Come Experience a SUTA Trail Work Party
– An easy Hike, Wildflowers Galore along the northern section of the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail
April 19th, 2014
Please help SUTA keep the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail open for year-round use! Our work parties provide fun and free exercise in a scenic outdoor setting, a chance to meet new and interesting people, and much-appreciated community service. And we provide great snacks and lunch! Please bring your friends, as many hands make light work.
When: April 19th Saturday 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM (includes lunch provided by SUTA)
Where: Meet at Deming Trailhead at 8:30 AM to carpool to the end of the ditch trail. This will be a one way hike of 3.5 miles back to Deming Trailhead.
What: Brushing and minor tread work on the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail from the Deming Trailhead north to the end of the ditch trail where it meets the new Grub Gulch Connector Trail
What to Bring: Wear comfortable hiking or work boots, dress in layers. If you have them, please bring gloves, loppers, a pruning saw or a tread tool such as a Pulaski, Grubber, or sturdy shovel. Please bring water and whatever snacks you like. SUTA will have some extra trail tools.
RSVP: If you plan to come, please email SUTAoregoncontact@gmail.com so we can plan the work party and food! Thank you
Weather Contingencies: We cancel work parties ONLY if serious weather threatens (pouring rain, blinding snow). Occasional showers, mist, or flurries don’t deter us…but check the SUTA website late Friday if you have doubts.
And if you are planning your calendar our LAST trail work party of the season is MAY 17
We’re looking forward to seeing you out on the trail. Thank you for your help.
