National Trails Day is this Saturday
This Saturday (June 4) is National Trails Day and there are several events scheduled for the Houston area.
Chris McNeil of REI sent the following information:
The Texas Forest Service and Houston Wilderness are going to be organizing a trail rehabilitation and clean-up in the Jones State Forest in Montgomery County- potential volunteers ought to call the Forest Service at 936/273-2261.
Also, the Buffalo Bayou Partnership will have Gene Green and Bill White cut the ribbon to the new East End trail that morning at 10:30 am, at the bayou off of Jensen, and a community festival will follow.
There will also be a big event out at Terry Hershey Park in the Energy Corridor that I'm helping to organize with REI and the County. We'll be planting 50 trees along the hike and bike trail along the western end of Buffalo Bayou. This is a work project, so volunteers ought to bring work gloves, but we'll provide the tools and the trees. Anyone who wants to learn more should contact me at REI: 713-353-2582.
