We are going to cut and dig our way through the slide area on the Kaslo River trail south side this Monday, April 17, 9am to noon. There is some tricky chainsawing to do, then its pick-axe and grub hoe work to etch a trail into the slide debris. We will meet at the end of Arena Ave. For tools, a grub hoe or pick-axe if you have one.

Lettrari Loop dangers

FYI. Will be putting this on next weeks work party.

Stu

From Kendrick Lawless
Was on the Extension trail this morning cleaning up the Letrari Loop and discovered a several trees down a rock slide along the stairs and a little ways up the trail as well. 
I cleared one tree from a creek that causing it to overrun the banks and wash out part of the trail. But the rest will require chainsaws and more people to move those rocks. 

This looking down the bottom the stairs. 

Looking up you can see how precarious the fallen tree is. It is being held in place by that little tiny tree. So it is in imminent danger of falling. 

This is looking up from the bottom of the stairs. 

And hear are a few of the trees found laying across the trail.

Membership……~10 hours per year. ~ 5 hours in the spring to set up and balance the cash for a 5 day drive at the Kaslo Credit Union. We have lots of support of this one with each volunteer taking a 2 or 3 hour shift. Another ~5 hours throughout the year to have someone at some selected functions.

Welcome to Kaslo Highway advertising signage…….Once a year at the beginning of June deliver invoices to various businesses to remind them that their rent is due by July 1st for the advertising signs on the two locations coming into Kaslo. Offer any blank spots to other businesses if available. This position can take anywhere from ~3-10 hours per year.

South River Trail Closure

A debris flow has occurred on the South Side of the Kaslo River Trail, blocking the trail with overhanging trees, rock and mud, and flowing water. The Village of Kaslo has posted closure of the South Side trail until it can be repaired, which will likely not be done until the flowing water stops. 
For your own safety please respect this closure.

Regards
Stu
