Rivanna Trails

Saturday Work Parties

Trail mainenance work parties occur the second Saturday of each month from 9:00-11:30. Our gathering point for work parties is at the RTF equipment shed at 2030 Morton Drive, near the Meadowcreek Gardens and behind Bodo's and the English Inn (see map below). We usually meet at the tool shed at 8:45 and carpool to the work site, but if you want to go directly to the project or expect to be being late, contact the work party leader.

Please wear clothes suitable for getting dirty in a forest environment, and bring work gloves. If you bring your own tools such as hand clippers, long-handled loppers, or pruning or bow saw, be sure to label them with your name. We also have tools and gloves you can borrow.

Everyone is welcome! If you are coming as part of a group, want to go directly to the work site, or have other questions, please email us so we can be adequately prepared to keep everyone busy and equipped with tools.

Details about a specific month's work party are on the Events page.
