Volunteer QOC Volunteers are Needed to Help with Trail Maintenance at the McKeldin Area of Patapsco State Park on Saturday, June 24th from 9:00am-1:00pm

The managers of the Patapsco Valley State Park have a policy that requires large groups like QOC to put in a number of volunteer hours doing trail maintenance and/or cleanup at various park locations. Our club uses a number of areas in the Patapsco State Park annually (Hilton, Avalon, Orange Grove, Granite and McKeldin), so we have a special interest in helping to support and maintain the park.

The club has agreed to round up as many volunteers as we can to do some trail maintenance on Saturday, June 24th from 9:00 – 1:00. We will assemble at the McKeldin area that morning. Volunteers should bring their own work gloves and the park will supply tools and instruction. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the maintenance of a park that we enjoy and benefit from on a yearly basis.

Post-Event Pizza! As a thanks for helping out, we'll provide pizza after the event to all volunteers who meet up at La Trattoria Montese, located right off of Marriottsville Rd near route 70.

Please text or email me by 6/20 if you are able to volunteer on the 24th. We want to get a head count of volunteers, so the park staff can plan the work day. We are hoping for a big turnout. Thanks!
