    Come help with one of two trail work projects at Freedom Park.  10:00 AM start time (later than normal so no excuse that it’s too early!).  Bring work gloves and water.  Choose one of the two projects below and note the two different meeting locations:

    Project 1: Trail D wooden bridge replacement.  ***Meet at Hornsby Middle School (850 Jolly Pond Rd.) soccer field parking lot and we'll go in at access #20, 0.25 mile to the bridge.  We’ll need help hauling lumber in, placing the bridge, and hauling the old bridge out.

    Project 2: Trail C, repair/rebuild several features: Monster Bridge landing, Wall Ride, and the new dirt rollers/jumps just after Wall Ride.  Meet at the main parking lot near the park building and we'll walk in across the field and use access #5A.  ***If you can bring a wheelbarrow and/or shovel, please do, as we’ll be moving dirt and turf stones.

    The Marshview trail work previously scheduled for this Saturday (23 April) has been cancelled by the City of Virginia Beach, who now want to have a City representative on-site for any future work so they can address any further citizen concerns. The trail captain is still having a walk-through on Saturday, same time and location, to review what remains to be done. A tentative new work date of May 14th has been proposed, but we will announce the final date/time when we get closer and the City can confirm their participation.

    Tomorrow's 5 February working party at Marshview Park has been postponed by the City of Virginia Beach. Although citizen input was solicited and approved earlier by the City, some citizens have now come forward with environmental concerns, which the City has to address before work can recommence. Stay tuned for updates.
