Trailbuilding Training — Getting Stoned!
August 4, 2020 @ 9:00 am - August 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Join us August 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 for a stonework training with Willie Bittner of Great Lakes Trailbuilders.
Our friend and stonework expert, Willie Bittner, is coming back to the SHT to teach us more exciting skills to move, shape, and build with stone. This training will involve significant work in the field, as we will be rebuilding the steps up to the summit of Britton Peak, just off the Sawbill Trail in Tofte — ALL IN STONE! Topics will include setting up and safely using a highline for moving rock; drilling, splitting and shaping stone; and how to work with native stone to properly construct a beautiful and durable set of stairs. Prior experience preferred, but not necessary.
Camping will be available locally for registered trainees.
Registration will open soon.
