    11/19- Meet at SVC Fieldhouse at 9:30am and we will work until about noon.
    Since it is now Rifle Season (white-tailed deer), we will work on trails on SVC Campus

    *Weather permitting for all events. If it snows/ground finally frozen, then we will update accordingly.

    Wear appropriate footwear and clothing for trail work. Gloves recommended. Bring water, snacks, and your bike or running/hiking shoes for a ride, hike, or run afterwards! We have tools, but a few extras can come in handy. If you have a small folding saw, loppers, or digging tool (pickmattock, put them in your trunk in case we need them!

    Please note that any and all changes to the trail system on Mount Anthony must go through the Bennington Area Trail System first. We are a small, non-profit dedicated to building and maintaining sustainable trails.
