Back for Seconds: Trail night at Texas Roadhouse June 28

Eat steak, build trail! 

The second Illinois Trail Corps night at Texas Roadhouse in Forsyth, Illinois is June 28—10% of your tab supports trail work this fall at Weldon Springs State Recreation Area. Diners MUST present the official flyer—PRINTED (sorry)—to make dinner count. Download the flyer here.

The May 31 event at Texas Roadhouse raised $240 towards Weldon Springs trail work—that means $2400 worth of fine steak & fish were consumed in the name of trails. Whatever it takes! :-)

Trail work at Weldon Springs moves to fall

Americorps NCCC can't send us a team this summer to repair trails at Weldon Springs State Park.

The program's admin says that applications for teams this hitch outnumbered available teams 2-1, and has asked us to consider applying for a fall team instead, serving mid-September to November 1.

After talking to Charlie Montgomery, the IDNR superintendent at Weldon Springs, the Weldon Springs Foundation, and the Friends of Grand Prairie (who was to be our partner for work in Charleston this fall ), we'll prepare for working this fall at Weldon Springs, and plan for Charleston in the spring.
