The Non-Motorized Transportation Advisory Board, Parks, Recreation and Trees Advisory Board, and Admiralty Audubon will co-sponsor a trailbuilding/maintenance workparty on the Kah Tai lagoon trail. We hope to add about 9 yards of gravel fines to the lagoon trail so those low spots won't be mud puddles in the rainy season. Wear work clothes and work gloves; dress for the weather because trailbuilders work in all weather. Bring wheelbarrows, shovels and garden rakes if you have them. Park in the Kah Tai parking lot near the bathrooms or at the Park & Ride next door. Meet on the lagoon trail at the bridge. Water, hot tea, and perhaps cider will be provided, along with Lys Burden's famous North Dakota Sour Milk Oatmeal Cookies and other treats for volunteers.
