Trail Stewardship Work Day
at Baltimore Woods Nature Center

Help us build a new trail on the preserve for all to enjoy!

Ever wonder what goes into making a trail or how trails are designed to ensure they stay usable throughout their lifetime? This is your opportunity to learn all about trail construction during a hands-on volunteer work day. Join Land Steward David DuBois for a morning of teamwork that will include cutting trail to establish tread, establishing drainage structures, and constructing rock steps for our new Boundary Trail reroute.  No matter what your experience with trail building is, come out to Baltimore Woods and learn what goes into making a trail!

 

Participants should wear long pants, close-toed shoes, work gloves, bring an appropriate amount of water, and be prepared to work. Work will use swinging tools including mattocks, picks, Pulaskis, and rock bars. Work can be somewhat strenuous at times. Masks must be worn when you cannot socially distance 6’ from people outside of your household (and during this work especially rock moving that will be the case). Heavy rain will postpone the work day. This program is for ages 14 and up.  Participants 14-18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Participants should plan to meet the Land Steward in the main parking at the start of the work day.
