The Heritage Chapter of the North Country Trail is hosting a November work weekend on Saturday, November 5th and Sunday, November 6th.
The Heritage Chapter was formed to develop, maintain and promote the use of the North Country National Scenic Trail from Copper Falls State Park near Mellen to the Wisconsin-Michigan border.
The main focus of the November work weekend will be trail construction and some maintenance. The organizer and contact for this event is Mike Stafford. So, if you have any questions or comments please contact Mike directly at 414-403-4575.
Where To Stay: The Chapter has free camping available Friday and Saturday in Copper Falls State Park at Overflow Site 2 (Hwy 169, just north of Mellen). Remember you will need a sticker pass on your vehicle if camping in the state park overnight. Heritage member Bethany Thomas has graciously funded the rental of the Cozy Valley Lodge, a vacation rental home on the Thewis Family Farm (on HWY 169 just north of the NCT Trailhead). Space is limited in this home, so you should reserve your space by contacting Bethany Thomas directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where And When To Meet: Please meet at the entrance station at Copper Falls State Park on Hwy 169 just east of Mellen at 8am on Saturday and Sunday mornings for tools, directions and carpooling.
What To Bring: Please bring your own water (2 liters), trail lunch, snacks and bug repellent.
Meals: The Heritage Chapter provides dinner after work on Saturday.
Thank you volunteers for all you do to support the North Country National Scenic Trail! Without volunteers there would not be a trail.
