OTT Work Scheduled for June

Two big efforts to improve the Oregon Timber Trail are set for June. OTT is lucky to have Ben McCormack and Nathan Frechen heading these up. I have included their email addresses. Be sure to contact them if you can participate.

Beer will be provided by Base Camp Brewing, and there are hopes of providing some level of food support. Camping will be included. If needed, tools will be provided.

It is unfortunate that these work parties conflict with Coldwater and the Tour de Gulch. I strongly encourage you to attend one or the other.
