PR NEMBA Bog Bridge Build

Date

11/6/21 10:00am

The Bangor Land Trust has scheduled a bog bridge construction project on Charlies Trail/Ridge Trail and are looking for volunteers!

The project will take place Saturday November 6th at 10:00am, with a rain date of Sunday November 7th.

We will meet at the end of Tamarack Trail off Essex Street to walk in and begin work.

The project will consist of transporting cut cedar rounds to the work site, preparing the ground for bridging, and installing hemlock planks on the cedar rounds to create an eight section bog boardwalk.

We will need the following tools:

-A chainsaw and volunteer willing to operate the saw for cutting cedar rounds

-Battery powered drills for drilling planks

-Shovels/pick axes (PRNEMBA owns and will provide these) for preparing the ground surface and creating drains

-Heavy hammer for pounding spikes into bridging

-Sturdy footwear and work gloves

 

Please reply via email to by Wednesday November 3rd if you are able to attend so we can provide an accurate head count and tool count to the Bangor Land Trust.

 

If you have not yet done so, please fill out the annual NEMBA waiver. This only needs to be signed once per year, takes less than 2 minutes, and ensures proper insurance and liability coverage for all those participating in any NEMBA event.
