Trail Maintenance at the Tourne 10/5/13

JORBA is pleased to announce trail maintenance at the Tourne County park this Saturday 10/5/13.

We will begin this effort by walking some of the trails and addressing the widening and braiding that has been occurring. As needed, we may also incorporate some erosion control measures. This is a great opportunity for local riders to help us identify future projects to improve the sustainability and quality of the trail network.

When: 10/5/13 at 9am
