Sep 8 all-day

adopt-a-road_20150609

Description

The EOTB has adopted a 2km stretch of Calabogie Road, northeast of The Bogie General Store. Twice a year, as part of the Adopt-a-Road program, the EOTB take a crew out to clean-up garbage along that 2km stretch. The process usually takes less than two hours, and we end the day with a short trail run, likely the Calabogie Line.

Meeting Place

To avoid delays in getting to the trail, we will skip the Bells Corners meeting place, and meet directly in Calabogie at The Bogie General Store.

Departure

We will meet at 10:00am to begin the highway clean-up.

Primary Meeting Location: We will depart for the trail once the highway clean-up is completed

Requirements

Tow Points are mandatory for this trail. We also recommend you carry a tow strap and some shackles.

For the highway clean-up, we will provide garbage bags and rubber gloves, but recommend you bring your own gloves and wear high visibility clothing (bright colors). Bug spray and sunscreen may also be wise.

Gas

Please come to the meeting location fully fueled and ready to roll.

Non-Members
