Time to spruce up a North Versailles area trail

April 30, 2017 by  

The Allegheny Land Trust will once again be working on its Dead Man’s Hollow Trail, and it is seeking volunteers from North Versailles to lend their support to its efforts.

The organization will be working to clean up and extend the trial by cutting trees, planting new ones, installing native plants, planting seeds, and removing invasive plants. The volunteers will also be removing litter and other debris. The goal for this year is to extend the route by six to ten miles, and the work will go ahead rain or shine, unless thunderstorms have been forecast.

Those who would like to lend their support and hands to the project are asked to dress appropriately for the jobs they will be doing, and refreshments, cold water, and tools will be provided. The organizers have asked that people bring along their own refillable water bottle if they have one. A company that prints customized business forms will be able to provide the organizers of a day such as this with copies of liability waivers and other documents for the volunteers to sign.

This day of hands-on environmental action has been planned for May 16 in McKeesport, and the Allegheny Land Trust is hoping as many people as possible will participate. Anyone who is interested in helping the group meet its goal has been asked to visit its website for additional details.
