Results / Work Done (Trail building, tree planting, etc): The volunteers worked in support of East Bay Regional Park District & Volunteers for Outdoor California (V-O-Cal) on projects in Crockett Hill Regional Park. The day’s efforts were focused on the Sugar City Trail that was recently re-graded by a trail dozer to allow for better emergency and maintenance access along the trail. Volunteers split into 7 crews and spread out along the 1.6 miles long trail with hand tools such as Pulaskis, McLeods, and pick mattocks to remove trailside berm, open drainage features and re-establish the trail tread.
