Remember how excited we all were when Jefferson Memorial Forest won the grant from Nature Valley? Next Saturday you can help them celebrate and start volunteering on the project the grant is going to fund.
On June 6, the Forest will celebrate National Trails Day
with a major groundbreaking event: the beginning of a trail that will
connect the Tom Wallace, Paul Yost, and Horine sections of the Forest!
The yet to be named, 1.5 mile sections of trail will be made possible
in part by a trail development grant from the Nature Valley Company.
The National Trails Day activities will begin at the Welcome Center at 9 a.m. and
continue until 1 p.m. We will start the day with a few words form
dignitaries and a ribbon cutting ceremony, then we begin trail
construction activities. All participants are welcome and we will be
given direction on proper trail design and construction. We hope that
you will join us and be part of this monumental step in joining three
major tracts of Jefferson Forest. Water and Nature Valley Granola bars
will be provided for all participants!
I totally think they should name the “yet to be named 1.5 mile” new section the “Consuming Louisville Trail” don’t you? Or better yet “Consuming Louisville Readers are Awesome Trail.” Yes, yes that’s the ticket. Heh, heh, heh.
Because summer is hot I’m looking at October or November for the Consuming Louisville volunteer day at Jefferson Memorial Forest. Does that sound good to y’all?
