Central CT NEMBA Berm Building Saturday at River Highlands

Date

6/9/18 10:00am

BERM BUILDING SATURDAY AT RIVER HIGHLANDS

Our next project is to turn a semi-eroded downhill into a berm run. It was funneling rainwater at one time but the water's been diverted so no more erosion. The berms are already there, they just need to be tuned up. Pick and shovel type work. Wear long pants, sturdy shoes, bring water and a snack. We'll meet in the park lot at 105 field Rd Cromwell at 10 AM. Bring a digging shovel and a garden rake if you have them. With a little work this could be a really cool bobsled run-type feature.
