HHC Third Saturday Work Day August 19th

On Saturday, August 19th, the Hoosier Hikers Council will be back at the Laura Hare Nature Preserve at Downey Hill where we’ll continue working on the scenic south section of this new trail. We’re really close to finishing the trail!

Please RSVP to hoosierhikerscouncil@gmail.com to let us know that you’re coming so we can plan enough lunch for all the workers. Please be aware that we unfortunately don’t have the resources to accommodate special dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten-free, etc.

Due to limited parking availability at the work site, we’ll meet at the nearby Country Gospel Church on SR 46 and carpool to the preserve. People with four-wheel drive vehicles can transport people from the church and park inside the gate at the preserve.

We’ll meet at 9:00 am Saturday at:

Country Gospel Church
5181 E. St. Rd. 46
Nashville, Indiana 47448

It’s a large, white church on the south side of SR 46 just west of Valley Branch Road.

Here’s a google map of the meeting location:

The preserve itself is on Valley Branch Road, about one and a half miles south of SR 46. You can find more information about the preserve at: http://sycamorelandtrust.org/downey-hill. Note that we may park in the gravel parking lot off Valley Branch Road on the west side of the preserve or we may park on the east side of the preserve on Mt. Liberty Road.

As usual we’ll work until about 3:00 pm, rain or shine, with a break for lunch at noon. Bring gloves and water. HHC will provide tools and lunch. Our guest chefs this month will be Jim Shearn and Jim Ferguson. It’ll be some good eatin’!
