And yea this to…

You know you want some of this…

And now, from Nov 11th to 13th, they are coming to the Cape Fear region to help us build trail to! Now of course that’s not all they really do. They also  teach us how to build trail better and more efficently. They help us learn how to make trails last for a very long time. That’s called being sustainable, and we all want our trails to be sustainable! Jake and Jenny really want you to come out and meet them. We even have a schedule of events for their visit so you can know where and when to meet them. Check it out!

Friday November 11th: Better Living Through Trails Presentation

Leland Senior Center (1490 Village Road Northeast, Leland, NC ) 6:00pm to 7:15pm

This presentation explores the positive relationships between communities and their trail systems. Trails as community assets can improve quality of life and livability in a community for both the biking and non-biking members, and can attract significant tourism dollars in addition in increasing overall quality of life. With statistics and case studies, participants will learn how to turn a quality community trail system into a destination trail system, and learn how to effectively market a trail system.

Saturday November 12th: IMBA Trail Building School

9am-noon: Trail building classroom session. Leland Senior Center (required to work that afternoon)

Lunch provided: Good, old-fashioned Carolina BBQ

1pm-5pm: Trail Building Field Session. Brunswick Nature Park MTB Trails.

Come join Cape Fear SORBA and the Trail Care Crew for a day of trail building school! IMBA’s Trail Building School teaches IMBA’s philosophies and trains local volunteers and land managers on how to build and maintain sustainable singletrack. The school involves three hours in the classroom followed by about four hours in the field doing hands-on trail work and field instruction. If you want to be a part of future trail building sessions this is for you! Please do not plan to attend the trail work if you can’t make it to the morning class. Please bring water, a hat, closed-toe shoes and wear pants.
