NW Trail Sister’s Dig Series: Trail Maintenance at Sandy Ridge – 2/4
February 4 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join us for the second installment of the NW Trail Sister’s Dig Series: Trail Maintenance sponsored by Fat Tire Farm!
DIG SEASON IS HERE! Are you ready to get dirty?
Join us at Sandy Ridge for the second installment of the NW Trail Sisters Dig Series – Trail Maintenance. We will focus on drainage mitigation, tread improvement and the overall nuts and bolts of trail maintenance. If that doesn’t sound like enough fun, Fat Tire Farm will be providing post-dig eats, drinks, and shuttles (yup – you read correctly, SHUTTLES).
The dig series is a set of dig days dedicated to skills and confidence building. We have four digs scheduled at multiple locations where we will cover the ins-and-outs of trail building in a fun and supportive environment.
We welcome all women and non-binary folks interested in trail building to join us! No prior digging experience is necessary.
Waiver: Once registered, please sign the waiver HERE.
What to bring:
- Warm clothing & extra layers: We will be outside in the cold, dress warm and bring extra layers.
- Rain jacket (and pants if you have them): It’s January in the PNW, odds are high it’ll rain and that doesn’t stop us from digging!
- Gloves (waterproof are best): It wouldn’t hurt to bring an extra pair, too. Cold hands suck!
- Sturdy shoes
- Helmet or hard hat (required)
- Eye protection
- Snacks & lunch
TOOLS WILL BE PROVIDED. You are not required to bring any tools, but if you have your own folding saw, loppers, rake, shovel, or hoe, feel free to bring it.
