If you are not attending the BONC Gala ride this weekend, please consider helping the Land Trust with the following project. From Bill Haire:
"We will be doing some trail maintenance work at Alta Sierra on Saturday, August 7, from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. (at the very latest).
Work will consist of cutting the tall grass along the grassy areas the Alan Thiesen Trail passes through, trimming back blackberries, Scotch broom and other brush, and any other vegetation that is protruding into the trails. If you have a weedeater or gas powered hedge trimmer, we can put it to good use. Otherwise, bring loppers, brush clippers, or brush shears to assist with the trail work (if you have them).
Meet at the corner of Dog Bar Rd. and Alta Sierra Drive at 8:00 a.m., to start work and be sure to wear appropriate clothing to work in the brush and grass (long sleeve shirt, trousers, boots or shoes, a hat or cap, and work gloves. Bring water, sun screen, and insect repellant for protection from the elements.
ASPOA (Alta Sierra Property Owners Association) will be providing a snack, and I will have water for those who forget to bring water."
