Outside the 236 clubhouse is a over grown flower garden. We wouls love someone with a green thumb to adopt this garden to make it beautiful and maintain it throughout the year. Daffadills were planted a few years ago but the weeds seem to domiate it.
Anyone interested lets us know.
On Sunday October 30th from 9:30 until 2:00 pm we will be having a trail day open to the public. This is the time when you can help by volunteering your time to make the free trails better. This year we will be working on rock removal from certain trails. Your help is needed. Join many members and local Boy Scout troops. Last year we put in 225 hours of trial/service time to the new land trust. Lunch is provided or bring your own. Gloves are recommended. If questions or you want to let us know to count on you or your group. Call 293-8420
Thanks to all that help!
Trails are looking fine. A special thanks to all that helped with clean up. Without your help there would have been little sking this winter. Be aware of branches in the trails and help keep them clean. The NLT is all volunteers. There are no paid employee’s mhere. So all you can do is appreciated.
A special thanks to all that helped yesterday with trail clean up from Irene. As they are aware there was a lot of damage. There are still lots of clean up to do. So, If you get a chance to visit the land trust for a walk, please move any sticks, logs and twigs from the trail. All efforts are greatly appreeciated!
All trails have been walked and examined. Trees have been cut . All the debrie is still on the trail. A few still need to be finished. And will be done for Sunday afternoon. Please be careful when walking the trails. Hope many can help tomorrow. If not and your walking on the trail, PLEASE, more any branches or twigs you see along the way. Your help is appreciated more than you know.
As the North Country recovers from the wind and rain brought by Hurricane Irene, we’d like to wish for a quick return to normal for all our friends and neighbors.
If you are out, please beware of dangerous “leaners” and other potential hazards. We are doing what we can to clear downed-trees and if you can help with any debris removal – please chip-in.
The recent winds have taken a disastrous toll on the trail system at the NLT. The New Land Trust trails were not majorly impacted by runoff, but MANY trees were knocked down and almost every trail has been impacted. It will take a community to ready it again for the winter season. The buildings were spared, but deadfalls, widowmakers and kindling threaten the trails from 3-wall to Bunkhouse and even the meadow.
A trail day has been scheduled for 12:30 on Sunday, September 4th to try and salvage the ski and snowshoe season. Bring gloves, and a friend if you can! Many hands make light work. Call Steve Jenks (293-8420) if you have, or are bringing, any tools or equipment so we can make the most of the day. Hope to see you there!
We are currently putting a new bridge on Nightrider. Joe & I have put in 2 twenty foot stringers. We are decking it with 8′ 2×8 hemlock planks. They are located at the top of nightrider before you head down the hill. If you are in the area and can grab a few to get it near the bridge that would be extrememly helpful. I will be decking it soon and putting up a railing. Probaly during the week. If you are interested in helping, leave a message on the NLT email.
We will have approximately 50 scouts and leaders here for trail work. Public is welcome to join in. More the merrier. Be there for a 9 am departure so be there on time. There is plenty to be done with many projects planned. Bring gloves, snacks, and tools. If you would like to help just show up or contact Steve at email@example.com
