Help Build Bay Area Ridge Trail - Nov 7

2nd Annual REI - Ridge Trail Service Day is Saturday November 7

Each and every Bay Area REI store will partner with a local park agency, land trust or open space district to build, improve, or restore a local section of the Bay Area Ridge Trail. With REI supporting an additional project in Napa (where there is no store), we'll have 11 different volunteer work parties on the Ridge Trail, with over 300 volunteers out maintaining this regional trail on a single day.

The event is free, but advance on-line registration is required to help manage each trail work project. Last year all the projects filled to capacity in advance & we hope to fill them again.

No experience necessary; tools and supervision provided. Projects vary at each site. Morning refreshments provided by REI, Peets Coffee & Tea, and the Council.
