Blue Hills trail maintenance

Saturday, August 5, 2017 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Join AMC Young Members to help with trail maintenance tasks in the Blue Hills! Jobs vary depending on current needs but previous trips have involved picking up trash, removing invasive plants, building and repairing water bars, and clearing overhanging/downed branches. Tools will be provided, but please bring water and sunscreen (bugspray is often a good idea there too) and wear sturdy boots/shoes and long pants. If you have gardening/work gloves please bring those too, although they will have extras if you need them. Free pizza lunch provided afterwards!

Trail Maintenance on Mt. Isolation

Sunday, June 25, 2017 12:00 AM

"First you must find... another shrubbery! Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must place it here, beside this shrubbery, only slightly higher so you get a two layer effect with a little path running down the middle. ("A path! A path!") Then, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest... with... a herring!"
? Graham Chapman

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
