Stone Splitting and Shaping Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Have you noticed that some trails are more eroded than others? Ever felt like the trail you were following was a stream bed? Take this workshop to find out why and learn how this can be prevented!

Be a traimage-20220815145642-2.jpegil builder for a day and see what it takes to split and shape stone for use in stone features such as staircases and walls.  Additionally, you'll get to learn about the season's exciting project(s)!

This workshop will help you learn what it takes to make the trails you love accessible and sustainable.

Please register.  Space is limited.
