Friends of Webster Trails need our help

Perhaps you’ve heard about the Friends of Webster Trails. If you’ve enjoyed ANY of the wonderful trails in Webster, then for sure you know about them, because they’re the ones largely responsible for making our tremendous trail system the treasure that it is.

These volunteers put in thousands of hours every summer planning, creating and maintaining these trails. It’s really a thankless job, since only a small percentage of the people who use our trails actually sign up as members of the Friends. (It really doesn’t cost much. Check out the membership page here.)

Here’s a great way to show your love and thank the organization for their efforts, and get a little exercise while you’re at it.

The Friends often put out a call to their membership volunteers for their weekly work parties. But the project they’re working on now is a big one and they need a LOT of help. So I’m helping to spread the word to the greater Webster community.

The project is located in the Hickory Bark Woods, which is that stand of woods adjacent to the Webster Public Library. On the weekends of August 4-5 and 11-12 the Friends will be building an observation platform. The area will be used for outside programs and as a place to enjoy some solitude among the hickory trees.

If you can carry boards, dig holes, or do some light assembly work, they can use you. Bring gloves and water, wear pants and closed shoes (not sandals). Post hole diggers and shovels would be helpful, too. Cold drinks and snacks will be provided.
