About This Weekend’s Met Branch Trail Day
Our Met Branch Trail Day is this Saturday, Aug. 17. We’re pleased to have received an overwhelming response to both the trail ride and the cleanup—so overwhelming that we’ve closed registration for both. If you’d still like to come out and support WABA this Saturday, we’re very much in need of marshals for the trail ride from Silver Spring to the Brookland Metro station. For more information and to sign up, see this page. We also need volunteers to make the cleanup run smoothly. We’re seeking:
- Cleanup crew leaders: Meet at 11 a.m. at the Brookland Metro station to direct cleanup participants hand out tools until about 3 p.m.
- Check-in captains: Meet at 11:40 a.m. at the Brookland Metro Station to check in participants until about 12:30 p.m.
- Met Branch Trail spokespeople: Between 1:30 and 4 p.m. or 4 and 6:30 p.m., help WABA staffers table at NoMa’s BeerFest. We’d love for people who are familiar with the MBT and enjoy talking about it, its access points, and the planning and advocacy around the trail to share their knowledge.
