The Trail Tamers are returning to Nature Conservancy's Love Creek Preserve in the heart of the Medina County this December to continue work on the trails near the Stewardship center. Sign up now for what has become a traditional year-end celebration for the Trail Tamers.
Less than 10 miles east of the Lost Maples State Natural Area, Love Creek Preserve offers crystal-clear waters that etch through deep, cool canyons, enabling native plants and wildlife to flourish on the Edwards Plateau. This protected acreage represents one of the most diverse habitats in the nation and some of the most scenic land in Texas.
Registration: You must be a member of the Trail Tamers for this trip and pay a $50 participation to cover meals and other expenses.
Food and Accommodations: Meals between Friday evening and Monday breakfast will be provided. Please advise the project leader if you have any dietary requirements or allergies. There are multiple tent sites available for tent or RV camping (no hookups).
Fitness Level Description: This project is suitable for individuals in good physical condition. Volunteers must be able to hike 2-5 miles a day and be physically able to perform routine trail maintenance such as trimming brush, constructing creek crossing and moving rocks.
Equipment and Clothing: Participants are expected to furnish their own gear, including tent, sleeping bag, day pack, water bottles, personal mess kit, and some a container to use for packing their lunch. Work clothes should be practical and include long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and well-broken-in hiking boots. Most importantly, participants should bring good work gloves and safety glasses.
Registration: The fee for this project is $50 and will be used to cover basic Trail Tamer organization expenses. Registration is open only to members of the Central Texas Trail Tamers.
Angie Hardy is the crew leader for the project.
