Joining in the Rumble

20141115_095042

A great day for a Rumble! FRARO joined up with Raven Rock Rumble 5 and 10 Mile Trail Run with hot coffee (we could feel the love), 200+ bottles of water, and 18 dozen donuts to help the runners refuel after their run. The coffee disappeared first, then the donuts, and we ended up with a little water left over that will be used for our next event. Thank you to all our volunteers who showed up in the balmy 27 degree weather – you hung in there and were a bonus to have around! Thank you to the Rumble organizers for inviting us to join in the fun – we had a blast!

Trails Workshop, 9-27-14

We had a wonderful time today attending the Trails Workshop conducted by our Regional Trails Specialist, Ms. Smith Raynor from Raleigh. We began with an academic overview, safety briefing, and tool knowledge. After a brief workshop along the beginning of Campbell Creek Trail, we broke for a lunch provided by the Friends of Raven Rock members.

After lunch we migrated to the Avents Creek Access area and cut down the East Bridle Trail for about 1.5 miles to begin actual trail work. We accomplished a lot of de-burming and some basic trail maintenance. What a delightful day learning how we can participate in the ongoing trail maintenance projects underway at the State Parks.
