Champion Workday: Repair Shoreline!

September 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us for a Champion trail maintenance event on Saturday, September 23rd from 9AM to 3PM. We are seeking strong, energetic volunteers. This is the most ambitious maintenance event we have done to date. It will be strenuous. We will be toting rock and gravel, assembling Gabion baskets, shoring up a bridge, excavating the footing for the Gabions, putting in drainage and a variety of other tasks associated with building the Gabion basket stone wall.

This volunteer event will kick off the repair. The California Conservation Corps (CCC) will follow on to continue and complete the lion’s share of the work. We expect them to start their work a few days after our workday. However, they are also on-call to assist with the wildfires. If they are called, this will delay the repair. This has been a difficult season for fires. We will hope for the best.

To participate, please register on the California State Parks Foundation website. They will contact you with information about where to meet, what to wear, what to bring, etc. Registration is essential to our planning for tools, supplies, equipment and, of course, food.

Bring your ‘Can do’ attitudes, a team spirit and a sense of humor, the essentials for a grand success!
