Bridge Building Workshop for Volunteers

Saturday, October 28, 2017

This workshop will cover all the basics of how to build and maintain high-quality bridges for community trails. Perfect for Conservation Commissioners, local service clubs, land trust volunteers, private landowners, or anyone wanting to keep community trails high and dry. You’ll learn terminology about different types of structures like puncheon, stringer bridges, and bog bridges. Building and maintaining bridges can be expensive, so you’ll learn how to answer the first question land mangers ask: Is a bridge the best solution to my problem? You’ll learn how to assess the condition of the trail, and how to deal with water, banks, and recreational uses. 

Date: October 28, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Cost: $25 General Public; $10 Bow Residents, use coupon code BOW RESIDENT (includes bag lunch).
