The first WST cleanup of 2019 will start at 9 am Saturday, March 9. Major rain will cancel. Be prepared to possibly get a bit damp!
Our task will include: Trash pickup and removal. 95% of trash is found in the parking lots or in the first 100 yards of trail past the trailhead. The TOTW [Top of the World] needs a trash bucket near the bench because of all the traffic. Trail Clearing [requires primarily loppers, but also nippers, and handsaws] Removal of vegetation that obstructs the trails or trail visibility. Place the old bench stored at Brent Owen's property on a nearby viewpoint [will probably be decided by the carrying capacity of the workers]. I will ask Brent to have it available. Those starting from the Dillard entry can park at the circle where Skywalker Drive hits the ridge.
After you have finished your work, please write a short note on what you did (e.g. trash removal, brushing, etc.) and where you did it (e.g. Rattlesnake Lane to Ridge), and email the information to Diane Madgic <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
CU Saturday morning.
SIGN THE LOCAL PETITION ON CLIMATE CHANGE at Ecoshasta.org! North State Climate Action, a new Redding group and SEA supporting organization has been circulating a petition on climate change to give to our local elected leaders including the Redding City Council, Shasta County Board of Supervisors and Congressman Doug LaMalfa. The petition is also now on the SEA website at www.ecoshasta.org. Go to the right of the menu and click on petition. You do not have to leave your address, just your email, city and zip code. Please help NSCA and SEA do our part locally to pressure or civic leaders to take action on global warming.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the Trails and Bikeways Council on Giving Tuesday. Thanks to you, we can continue to advocate for trails in the greater Redding area!
