“Six Hours in the Woods” Volunteer Workday
October 25, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join us on Sunday, October 25, for a special “Six Hours in the Woods” volunteer workday at the NEW Sophie’s Lair Trail. This trail, located on Reg and Jenny Bedell’s property in Willsboro, is named in honor of their cat, Sophie who enjoyed roaming these woods, climbing trees, and just being a “wild animal” in the outdoors. Thanks to the fourteen volunteers from the American Hiking Society who worked last week with Bill Amadon, we’ve made great progress and now YOU can help us complete the trail in time for cross-country ski season.
Meet at the trailhead at the Florence Hathaway Trail parking lot at 9:00 a.m. (Directions are below). Bring your lunch and loppers and/or handsaws if you have them. We will work until 3:00 p.m.
Directions to Florence Hathaway Trail parking lot: On Route 22, 1.3 miles south of bridge over the Boquet River in Willsboro, or 3.2 miles north of Essex.
