NEW — 11:40 p.m., Sept. 21, 2011
Volunteers are needed to plant 250 trees from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 8 along the new East May Creek Trail.
Interested participants will meet at the access road on 89th Place, west of Coal Creek Parkway. Follow the signs to parking.
Construction of the East May Creek Trail began several months ago in cooperation with the city of Newcastle, Newcastle Trails, Weed Warriors, the Boy Scouts and a group of volunteers.
The Arbor Day tree planting offers a preview to the trail that takes walkers down the canyon to May Creek.
The city of Newcastle will supply the trees, gloves and shovels. Participants are asked to wear sturdy shoes.
