Dear fellow CAMBC members,
Thanks to everyone who came to visit the humble abode of Community Bikes and the Urban Agriculture Collective of Charlottesville for last night’s potluck. I wanted to send out a reminder about this Saturday’s Rivanna Trails Foundation (RTF) trailwork party.
The RTF hosts a work party somewhere along our local urban loop trail every secondSaturday of every month. This Saturday, August 9, we’ll be starting at the trail’s intersection with Holmes Avenue, working first towards Locust Avenue, and then west towards Park Street. It’s a particularly popular segment of the trail, so our efforts will be much appreciated.
We meet for each work party at the RTF Tool Shed at 2030 Morton Drive at 8:45 AM. We gather tools, consolidate cars, caravan to the work site, and accomplish incredible things! We typically finish up at about 11:30.
Please wear clothes suitable for getting dirty in a forest environment, and bring work gloves. If you have a favorite pair of hand clippers, loppers, or a bow saw, we encourage you to bring it along. Be sure to label your tools with your name. RTF also has tools you can borrow.
If you are coming as part of a large group, or want to go directly to the work site, please drop us a line at email@example.com so we can be adequately prepared to keep everyone busy and equipped with tools.
We encourage you to visit the RTF website at www.rivannatrails.org where you can sign up for our email list to receive monthly work party announcements. While you’re there, consider becoming a member. Your membership in RTF helps us pay for things like tools and insurance that allow us to keep our beloved urban trail open for everyone to explore and enjoy.
Thanks for your support, and I hope to see you out on the trails!
