Come join us for a day of digging in the dirt on the Howe Sound Crest Trail! It's that time of year again - the water is running, the leaves and branches are falling, and the trails in Cypress need some human power to help keep them in great shape. It's actually really satisfying work, I promise! The crew will meet a Ranger at 10am at the Black Mountain Lodge (Cypress). Each person will get a tool - a shovel, a pulaski, or a hoe - and we hike in a short distance to access the most popular sections of the trail. We'll mainly be digging ditches and culverts to route water off the trail. It's dirty work, but fun and definitely rewarding. It's a bit like being a kid in a sandbox all over again! BC Parks needs the volunteer power to help keep our trails in the Sea-to-Sky in good order, and the effort by the ACC Vancouver section to stay involved is hugely appreciated. Sign up early (and let me know if you can't make it for any reason) so that we can plan accordingly and make sure we have enough tools. Get in touch if you have any questions!
