Saturday, April 28, 2012 is our next trail work day – we plan to complete Astro Bridge at Beaver Pond – coordinate E10 on the attached map. We have done a good deal of prep work on the bridge – the stringers are in place. What remains is to attach the railings and deck boards, build soil on-off ramps, and demolish the old bridge.

We'll meet at the Weed Rd lot (coordinate I11 – eye11) off Rt 207 at 9:30 – we’ll start work at 10:00 AM and finish by 2:00 PM. I drive a green Subaru Forrester and will park somewhere in the middle of the lot. When we have everyone together, we’ll distribute name tags, order lunch, and carpool to the work site.

There will be a short talk on safety; then we’ll go over the work plan, divide into crews, distribute tools, and get to work. SOS has sufficient tools for the planned work, but another wheelbarrow would be helpful.

Please bring the following personal equipment:
• Weather appropriate clothing
• Safety Glasses
• Work Gloves
• Sturdy Boots
• Water

*** SOS 2012 Work Day Calendar. We’ve schedule our work days on the 3rd Saturday of the month – unless there is a conflict. Our schedule for the rest of 2012 is: 5/19, 6/23 – per DEC no events on 6/16, 7/21, 8/18, 9/15, 10/20, 11/10 – before Regular Deer Season.

*** Get more involved. If you’d like to be more involved in any aspect of SOS please let us know – we can use the help.

*** Help get the word out - please print copies of the attached poster and stop by your favorite bike shop, saddlery / tack shop, gym, outfitters, or other establishment you think caters to other people who use and value Stewart. Tell them about Stewards of Stewart, ask them to display the poster, and let them know we appreciate their support. We have a bunch of swanky business cards - if you want some to go along with the posters let us know.

We have the beginnings of a website - see '' Stewards of Stewart

See you on the 28th.
