August 17, 2013 Third Saturday Work Day

The next HHC Third Saturday Work Day, on August 17th, will be back at Monroe County’s Flatwoods Park. The park is on Flatwoods Road off of SR 46 at the western edge of Monroe County. To get there, take SR 46 west from Bloomington, past Ellettsville, to Flatwoods Road and turn south. You’ll see a sign on your left after about a mile. We’ll meet at 9:00 am in the parking lot. Here is a link to a Google map of the location:

Despite its somewhat remote location, Flatwoods Park is a popular place. This project involves building a short, new trail through a relatively flat, brushy woods. The path is all cleared now, so we’ll finish up the last section of scraping and light benching. This should be our last Third Saturday work day at Flatwoods, so don’t miss it!  Bring gloves, water, and your favorite clippers. HHC will provide other tools and lunch.
