On Wednesday afternoon, Marty Larson and I visited the Cannon Rivers bottoms in Sechler Park to scout a trail, do a little marking, and clear some downed branches. We need some demonstration trails to show members of the Northfield Parks Board (PRAB) what singletrack looks like and where it might go. We are NOT authorized to do any ‘creating’ at this point (eg, building berms, rollers, technical obstacles, etc).
We’d like to get a team of volunteers out Saturday morning, April 19th, to clear things out a bit more.
- 8 am: socializing at the Goodbye Blue Monday or Tandem Bagels, whichever is quieter/has space.
- 9 am: meeting at the pavilion / playground near the south entrance Sechler Park.
Bring hand pruners, branch loppers, and bow saws so we can clear the trails where we’ll want PRAB members to walk. Bring rakes, too, as the ground is thick with years of composting leaves and vegetation. Eventually when most of the work is done, we will be installing the outdoor, brush cameras we got from shooting authority, they will surely capture great shots.
