March 25th – Trail Building (10am-2pm)

location to be announced
If not properly built, a host of different impacts – particularly the natural flow of water – can erode and damage trails. This day in the field will teach about techniques like side-hilling and drain-building which help ensure that hiking trails remain in peak condition despite the challenges of erosion from nature and regular use. It will also discuss more advanced trail building techniques like turnpiking and bog-bridging to address wet areas.
