Laurel Ridge Work Day & Ski Swap on Sunday, November 14th!
Join PACCSA on Sunday, November 14th for some pre-season fun! We'll be kicking off the day at 10:00 AM with an all-day Ski Swap in the upper warming hut. If you have ill-fitting ski equipment/clothing that needs a new home, or are hunting for some reasonably priced gear, this is your chance! This Ski Swap is a totally free event for anyone interested.
After you check out the Ski Swap, help PACCSA and DCNR get the Laurel Ridge trail system ready for snow! We'll be doing trail work from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM with a focus on clearing the trails of fallen debris, cleaning out culverts and drains, cutting back invasive saplings, and stacking firewood. There are a lot of trails at Laurel Ridge, so we can use all of the help we can get!
Please bring work gloves and hand tools such as loppers, clippers, bow saws, and rakes. Spade shovels are also useful for clearing drains. If you don't have any of these tools, don't worry! There will be plenty of extras. Dress appropriately for the weather, and since PACCSA work days take place during hunting season, it's always wise to wear bright, visible clothing. Finally, if you're not already registered as a DCNR Conservation Volunteer, please do so online by clicking here.
With everyone's help, we'll have all of the trails clean and clear for the season's first big snowfall!
