We need you to repair King Mountain Trail


A last call from the Friends of gatineau PARK

About fifteen volunteers have already answered our call so far and will come to King Mountain Trail, on Saturday October 13, to participate in the rehabilitation of the trail. We would like to have about 10 more volunteers for this activity.

If you have not already done so, please register by sending your intention to participate to Julien Raby at julien.raby@sympatico.ca.  Pass the word to your friends and invite them to come and enjoy a day in the Park while contributing to its conservation.

What to bring:

Small packsack, working clothes, hiking shoes, rain gear, beverage and lunch, bug repellent and your smile.  Tools will be provided by the NCC (shovels, rakes, buckets, gloves, etc.).

Meeting place:

As the parking lot for King Mountain is not that large, we are considering car pooling for those who can.  For those interested in car pooling, we will all meet at the Park information center (P3), off Gamelin Boulevard.

Program of the day:

8:15 – Meet at P3 for car pooling.

8:30 – Carpool and drive to King Mountain Trail parking area where coffee and doughnuts, greetings and instructions will be provided.

9:00 – Work start: transporting and spreading crushed stones and other repair work.

12:00 – Lunch on the shores of Black Lake.

1:00 – Completing trail repair work.

2:30 – End of work and drive back to P3.

In case of inclement weather:

Under a light rain, “the show will go on”.  However, if the forecast is clearly undesirable, an e-mail will be sent the day before the event to those who have registered.  It will indicate that the work party is cancelled.

Door prize:

The Relais Camp de base store in Gatineau is offering a participation prize.  The draw will take place at lunchtime.

Looking forward to see you all on the trail.
