Remember to wear boots, we will be walking through mud!
Saturday, December 12th.
11:00 am @ Firehouse Cafe – 1314 Harris Ave.
11:30 am @ Fairhaven Park Trailhead
11:30 am – 11:45 am Walk the Phase One “Fairhaven Park -18th Street Connector” trail. If you don’t want to continue, you may turn around.
11:45 am – 12:00 pm See the proposed Phase Two trail alignment crossing the muddy mess! You’ll need boots!!
12:00 pm – 12:30 pm Short walk to old gravel pit area
12:30 pm – 1:00 pm Walk out of woods, return to trail head and Firehouse Cafe.
Join Executive Director, Todd Elsworth, on a walk starting at 11:00 am from the Firehouse Cafe in Fairhaven to Fairhaven Park. We’ll meet others at 11:30 am at the Trailhead to venture into the Fairhaven Park Forest. (see map below)
The Trail Talk will cover the completed Phase One of the project and provide a sneak peak at the next steps to get across the muddy mess of the wetland. Phase Two of the project will require a wetland crossing with a boardwalk or series of bridges, that is yet to be determined.
We will continue into the woods to help orient people with the network of trails inside the forest. Our destination will be the “old gravel pit” area where we are in the process of determining the feasibility of working with neighborhood youth to build and maintain mountain bike trails and features.
Trail Talk with Todd is inspired by Nature Walk With Chuck (Almost Live!) but he will not replicate his behavior.
Todd Elsworth is one of the many “Mossy-haired lunatics roaming the dripping peninsulas”, described in “I’m Here for the Weather” by Tom Robbins. As executive director, he works to fulfill our mission to teach the health benefits of nature, promote outdoor recreation, and steward the places where we play.
