I wanted to take a second to pass along some info about our partnership with REI & the James River Park System for National Public Lands Day this Saturday.
Please join Richmond-MORE and REI on Saturday September 24th at 9am in the Reedy Creek parking lot. Last year we rerouted a section of the Buttermilk trail. This involved cutting in about 300 feet of new trail and reclaiming about 250 feet of trail. This year we'll be doing some lighter duty work that includes the staining and painting of some bridges along the Buttermilk Trail as well as a small repair along a set of stone steps on Buttermilk as well.
VORS series racers don't forget that you can earn series points for trail work!
REI asks that you please register for this event via their website located here. It only takes a second to sign up.
We hope to see you there in support of National Public Lands Day.
PS. In case of rain or unforeseen events, please check for cancellations on our website. Any cancellation notice will be posted by 8:00am on Saturday in our News section. Our website is at:www.richmond-more.org.
