The Poor House and nearby trail on UVa grounds received a sprucing up during Earth Week thanks to Carey Hill’s efforts to coordinate volunteers from the UVa Sustainability Outreach Committee and the Charlottesville Area Mountain Biking Community (CAMBC). Thanks, Carey!




 

Before and After shots


highlight the efforts of May’s Second Saturday Work Party volunteers. Under the leadership of Michael Barnes, volunteers mowed, lopped, pulled, sawed, dug, and removed trash from this lovely stretch of trail between the Christian Aid fields and the RT’s intersection with 5th Street near Harris Street. Check out more pictures on our photo pages.

 

Future opportunities to volunteer:

June 1, City Parks & Rec. is celebrating National Trails Day by clearing trail in the Ragged Mountain Natural Area. Watch local media for details.

June 8, RTF Second Saturday work party.

Anytime – Carry clippers w/ you when you hike and clip back those aggressive vines and branches. RTF’s goal is to keep trail corridors open to approximately
6’ wide X 7’ high.
