Volunteer Opportunity at Coopers Rock - July 11

***Sat, July 11 Adopt-A-Trail Service: Coopers Rock
rated easy -- This will be the summer trail clean-up on our "adopted" Intermediate Cross-Country Ski Trail and loop for 1.25 miles at Coopers Rock State Forest. Much of the work will be cutting back vegetation, cleaning out and restoring drainage ditches/culverts and general trail clearing. We'll have time to ID trees along the way. Some moderate-intensity work will be necessary, using shovels, rakes and pruners and moving reasonably sized rocks. Anything requiring power tools or heavy lifting is deferred to the Forest Superintendent. Volunteers should wear sturdy boots and work gloves and carry water and snacks. Contact leader for more details.
Leader: Ann Devine-King, 304-594-2636,
Nearest town: Morgantown, WV

For this weekend from Rick Landenberger

Two things: 1.) There is a volunteer trail maintenance day this Saturday at Elizabeth’s Woods Nature Preserve south of Morgantown. We will work from 10 AM until 4 PM on the lower loop trail. Please consider coming out to help build the trail system at Morgantown’s newest public green space. Contact me if you are planning to come so that I will have enough tools.  And 2.) there is a Green Space Coalition meeting next Thursday (6/18) at noon at the downtown Black Bear. Send me any agenda items, and I’ll send out a draft agenda early next week.

If anyone is interested in paddling a section of the Cheat on Sunday (water willing) feel free to join us. We’ll try for the stretch between St. George and the Seven Islands. Cross your fingers for rain!
