|Add event to calendar||
Join the Botanical Society to work on a trail re-route project on the Scott's Gap Loop Trail, which is about a 20 minute drive south of campus.
Louisville Metro Parks staff will provide training and all gear needed (including gloves, hand tools, and water bottles). After completing the work effort, we'll grab a free lunch at the Dairy Queen in Fairdale - a free combo meal of your choice!
Volunteers should dress accordingly - especially wearing a pair of sturdy, close-toed shoes or boots, socks, long pants, layered clothing up top, and maybe even a hat or cap.
If you've never done anything like this, you can be assured of a really a good time doing this type of outdoors sustainability work - it's also a great way to deal with stress that all of us feel at times.
Once everyone arrives at the Scott's Gap trailhead on the west side of JMF, we'll do a briefing about the activity including work area, tools use, and game plan for the trail re-route.
