Helping King MountainTrail in Gatineau Park

A message to the Park’s users and their friends

On Saturday, October 13, a group of volunteers will meet at King Mountain trail’s head to assist in the repair and maintenance of the trail. More specifically, we will be transporting and spreading crush stones on selected areas of the trail as well as doing other repair work adapted to the capabilities of each participant.

This fun/educational/work party, an initiative of the Friends of Gatineau Park, is hoping to gather a sufficient number of volunteers to repair erosion damage and to learn about trail conservation practices.  Two Park agents will supervise our activities.  Already, a number of persons have confirmed their participation but we need many more volunteers.

We will meet at 8h30, at the trail parking lot where coffee and donuts will be served and where directions will be provided.  After the morning activities, we will have lunch together and resume our effort until about 3 pm.  Hard hats, gloves and tools will be provided by the NCC.

If you have not registered yet, please do so soon as we need to plan that day.  Send an e-mail to Julien Raby at julien.raby@sympatico.ca and provide your name, phone number and e-mail address.
