We will partner with the Blue Mountain Audubon Society on this project. Work will primarily be the placement of wood chips on the trails. Brushwork will be performed as needed. The City of Walla Walla has placed piles of chips area the nature area. Teams will fill wheelbarrows and move chips to the trails. Others will then spread the chips on the trails.
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO MARCH 30 DUE TO WEATHER.
