April 23rd is trail project date

Friends of Fox Creek is conducting its annual Fox Creek Clean-up on Saturday, April 23rd , from 9 am to 1 pm in partnership with SOLV, the City of Rainier, Boy Scout Troop 332 and Riverside Community Church.

Volunteers will remove English Ivy and Himalaya Blackberries from the trail sides and spread wood chips donated by Georgia Pacific Wauna Mill. Leather gloves, five-gallon buckets and owner-marked hand tools will be needed.

Volunteers may register at SOLV’s web site before the day of the event ( http://www.solv.org/programs/event_details.asp?eventID=18722 ), or call Darrel Whipple (503-556-9838) or Bob Burnham (503-556-4918). Participants will park on C Street between West Second and West Third in Rainier or in the Riverside Community Church parking lot and assemble south of the lot at the trail head.
