Spring Gulch work day planned Sept. 12

The annual Spring Gulch Trail work day is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday.

Sponsored by the Spring Gulch Nordic Council, the work day entitles seeding trail and spreading hay on newly graded trails, cutting branches and clearing debris at the popular Nordic facility located outside Carbondale.

“Lopper” gardening tools, work gloves and a raincoat are recommended items that will make the day flow more easily.

All ages are welcome, but an adult should accompany children younger than 12.

“The trails that we love and use regularly would not exist without community support,” said Maria Stuber, Nordic program director for the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club.

“Trail work is the best way for kids to be involved. It’s also a great chance to get to know parents, coaches and other Nordic supporters from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley,” she added.

Spring Gulch is a community nonprofit that relies on volunteers and memberships, which may be purchased at http://www.springgulch.org/support.
