Monthly Trails and YIPS! Crew
The Trails and YIPS! Crew ( Yachats Invasive Plants Subcommittee) normally meets on the first and third Saturdays of every month for two hours of work, weather permitting.
First & Third Saturdays
Work on the first Saturday normally focuses mainly on trail* maintenance, repair and upgrades. On the third Saturday, the emphasis is more on removing invasive weeds**. However we try always to accommodate everyone’s interests and abilities by planning a variety of tasks on every work day.
We normally meet at the north end of the Commons at about 9:45 am for orientation and instructions, and disperse from there. The actual starting times may vary between 9:30 and 10:00 am, but will always be specified in the e-mail announcement of the work session. After work we adjourn to the Drift Inn for complimentary drinks and snacks.
Details of the planned activities are sent out by e-mail a few days ahead of time. If you would like to get on the mailing list, contact Loren Dickinson.
* We work on the Ya Xaik trail, the Amanda trail, the Prospect trail, the Gerdemann public trail, and the trail system in the Commons Wetland Park.
** YIPS! work includes all trails, the Whale Tail Park, the Prospect Garden and the Commons Wetland Park.
