Legacy Loop Volunteers Needed! Help place signs/wayfinding!Dec 9, 10:00amLegacy Plaza, 1800 Recreation Way, Colorado SpringsLegacy Loop Workday to install trail markers along both Monument Valley trail and Shooks Run trail. Saturday, December 9th, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Meet at the newly-dedicated Legacy Loop Plaza parking area, just east of I-25 off the Fontanero exit
The Legacy Loop lacks trail signs and way-finding is challenging. Your help in installing trail markers helps the City stretch scarce Parks dollars. Our trail sign project will be completed with donated funds and volunteers.
No experience needed. Families are welcome. We’ll meet at 10 a.m. sharp for sign placing instruction and tool safety talk. Bring a hat, water bottle, sunscreen, work gloves, and snacks. We’ll also likely need a few shovels and garden spades, levels (to install the markers vertically!), and a few 5 gallon plastic buckets, so plan to bring those if you have them. We’ll divide into teams and spread out to pre-marked locations around the Loop to install the trail markers. Many hands will make light work, so please plan to join us for this special holiday gift to Colorado Springs.
Thanks to: Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department; Springs Fabrication manufactured the trail markers; Colorado Springs Forward funded the purchase of the trail markers; and community members (that’s YOU!) assisting in the installation of the trail markers....
