CANCELLED due to heavy wet snow!
Meet at the Entrance to Elder Cedar Nature Reserve. Please park on North Road, not in the parking lot. Thank you.
Many residents and visitors to Gabriola enjoy the lovely loop trail in Elder Cedar Reserve. Unfortunately, there are several spots on the west wing of the loop that are nearly impassable this time of year. Last year GaLTT contracted with the Island Trust Conservancy (formerly the Island Trust Fund) to build boardwalks for these sections. The boardwalks have been cut and partially assembled, and just need installation.
Also, a couple volunteers are needed for shoring-up the existing boardwalk around the actual Elder Cedar. In some cases the spans are too large, and the existing boardwalk is bouncy in spots. This is OK for now, but as the boards weaken with age this will become dangerous. Best to fix this now, while the screws are easy to remove.
Bring gloves, shovels, picks, and impact drivers with a #2 driver. We can also use a few wheelbarrows.
