Ladies and Gentlemen,
We need your help!! Grooming parties scheduled for Sunday, September 28 and Saturday, October 4.
Brush grows in the Pacific Northwest, so we need to keep cutting. We maintain the ski and snow shoe trails with a combination of large equipment and hand work. This is the time of year for the manual labor. Salmon Ridge is funded from NRTP grants, Sno-Park grants, and funds from the club treasury. The NRTP grant requires NNSC to provide matching “funds”, which can be in the form of manual labor. So, in addition to actually doing trail maintenance, we’re also provides matching funds in the form of labor hours for the next round of NRTP grant applications.
Work party at Salmon Ridge. The work entails a variety of road and trail maintenance activities that can be modified to fit the interests and abilities of those participating. On the ski trails, there is typically a need to cut and haul limbs and logs off the road and deposit them downhill. Usually there is some brush cutting work to be done with the club’s brush cutters. A couple people often walk the roads with shovels to make sure culverts are flowing freely under the roads. The snow shoe trails can always stand trimming and possibly installation of more signs, especially above Razor Hone Rd. If you don’t think you can work a full day, you can do a few hours. If you don’t consider yourself very strong, there will be smaller branches for you to move. It will be a good chance for camaraderie and friendship, even if it’s 34 degrees and raining snow.
