Alaska Agriculture Appreciation Day is Thurs Aug 7, noon to 5pm, at the Matanuska Experiment Farm Trailhead (google maps can give directions). There will be usual games for kids and fun educational booths.
Matanuska Greenbelt will have a table as will the Mat-Su Trails and Parks Foundation, with their new Executive Director, and the Mat-Su Borough Landfill Manager. Landfill manager have a map of their operations with our trails overlaid on them - no more guessing between two different images as to where things are. So this will be a great place to ask questions about MGT trails as well as general.
Trail Beautification Day aka trash pickup day will be Sat Sept 27 meeting at Crevasse-Moraine Trailhead and working out toward K-Mart Alley/Korner. Details are still being worked out, but we expect to start somewhere around 10:30am (give or take 30min) and finish by 2pm. (check our calendar and website as we get closer to date) There will be a bbq! The Landfill has installed some barriers to reduce the amount of trash blowing out of the landfill AND has had many people working many hours to help pick up trash along K-Mart Alley/ Korner. They've asked volunteers to lend a hand and are making it into a day besides just picking up trash. If we get enough people, we may have some spread out in other areas, but the vast majority of trash is downwind of the Landfill.
Hope to see you at both events.
