Did you know the Friends of the Heysen Trail operates a Maintenance Shed at the Cobbler Creek Recreation Park?
Wondering what goes on behind the scenes of the Trail Development and Maintenance program?
Did you know we have a working partnership with the Work for the Dole scheme to produce toilets and platforms?
Come along to the Friend’s Shed Open Day
- Find out more about the infrastructure and maintenance program.
- Socialise with like-minded members, free BBQ and drinks on offer.
Details and how to register…
When Saturday November 25 2017, 11.00am to 2.00pm.
|Where||‘The Shed’, Cobbler Creek Conservation Park, east of the intersection of Smith and Bridge Rds, Salisbury East.|
All you need to bring is a chair and hat. BBQ and drinks will be supplied
We have work ready to do now:
By Christmas we will have 3 new toilets and 15 camping platforms ready to install at a range of locations along the trail.
- Are you interested in helping with the installation project? You don’t need to be highly skilled, although some lifting work may be involved.
- Would you like to be notified of future maintenance events ( i.e. weekday or weekend trail trips, our End to End Maintenance weekends and shed work days)? We have a range of work to be done including ‘lighter’ jobs such as pruning along the trail and painting huts.
Do you have home handy person/building skills?
Our Hut Maintenance Co-ordinator needs more assistance.
If you are a skilled home handyperson or tradesperson and are willing to participate in one or two maintenance trips per year with a small group, please put your name on the list below. Typical work includes carpentry, painting, roofing, plumbing, glazing and plastering.
If you can help in any of these areas, please let us know.
You can leave your name to enter your availability preferences and interests/skills and we will add you to our Maintenance Volunteers mailing list.
This is your chance to ‘give a bit back to the trail’.
