We need some hardy volunteers next week, Wednesday, June 9-Friday, June 11, to help apply a more durable surfacing material to the Heinrich Demonstration Trail near McCall. Celebration National Trails Day a tiny bit late! Come out and help spread out trail-surfacing materials — a special compaction mix from Tony Mechel Excavation in Lake Fork. People are welcome to work a morning or afternoon shift on any of those days. VCP will provide lunch, water and bragging rights for our volunteers.

Please contact Steve Stuebner if you’re interested at sstuebner@cableone.net

We’re expecting that volunteers will need to work only a couple of hours and then go on with their day. We will provide rakes and shovels. Volunteers should wear sturdy boots, gloves, a hat and sun protection.

Right now, multiple piles of road mix are staged along Heinrich Lane. We will have a motorized Whiteman Mud Buggy laying down the compaction mix with a hydraulic wheelbarrow. Our volunteers with rakes and shovels will smooth out the material 4-6″ deep across the 3-foot-wide trail for 4,000 linear feet. Hope to be done by Saturday, June 12!

Next, our trail contractor Alex Ray with Payette Environmental will compact the road mix evenly across the trail with a mini-excavator, and then we’ll roll the trail to finish the compaction work.

The trail’s grand opening will be announced soon! Thank you! Spread the word!
