Trailbuilding Training — Unclog Those Pipes!

July 8, 2020 @ 8:00 am - July 11, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Join us July 8, 9, 10, and 11 for “Unclog Those Pipes! A Trail Plumbing Training, or The Importance of Proper Drainage on a Trail,” with Tim Malzhan, Trail Operations Director from the Ice Age Trail (doing business as “Trail Eyes”).

Ever walked through a puddle on the SHT and felt the mud begin to drain your soul? Well, this is your chance for karmic revenge. Puddles, erosion, and mud are just a few of the symptoms of an improperly plumbed trail, and they are all too common on the SHT. The goal of this training will be to learn how to properly and effectively retrofit existing trail with new drainage features, like knicks and dips, to facilitate the expeditious movement of water away from the Trail. The SHT is in great need of plumbers!

Camping will be available at Finland State Forest Campground the nights of July 7-11 with training likely taking place on the Bean and Bear Lakes Loop.

Registration will open soon.
