Highlands Greenway workday at Kelsey Trail this Saturday

In partnership with the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust, Highlands Plateau Greenway volunteers will be constructing a new loop trail in the Kelsey Trail Preserve.

This beautiful-wooded preserve is blocks away from Main Street in Highlands and home to the first leg of the historic Kelsey Trail.

Join us on Saturday, March 20 from 9 a.m. to noon, to learn more about trail construction and give back to your community!

If interested in participating, please email highplateaugreenway@gmail.com so we know you are coming.

The entrance to the Kelsey Trail Preserve at the end of 5th Street in Highlands.

Participants will meet at the large upper parking lot behind the Recreation Center at 9 a.m. for a brief orientation session, and given the necessary tools and equipment.

We hope you will join us for lunch following the workday, our treat.
