Grant to build boardwalk

As you may be aware, the Friends of Hibou has received a $4000 grant from TD Canada Trust Environmental Fund to build a boardwalk at Hibou through the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority.
What follows are the plans, hoping some of you may be able to volunteer to help
The building materials will be delivered to Hibou Park on Monday Oct 28 in readiness to begin building on Wednesday.

Here are the plans for building, and assembly of the Boardwalk

When: 9am till 4pm on Wednesday Oct 30, Thursday Oct 31 costume optional), and Friday Nov 1st.
Where to meet: Hibou park by the garage in the beach parking Lot.
Construction: The boardwalk will be built in 8 foot sections using precut 2×6’s. It should go quickly.
To the site: Boardwalk pieces will be moved 700 meters along the northerly trail to the build location with the small truck owned by GSCA
Assembly: This will take place by putting sections on a block and using a screw gun to connect boardwalk pieces.
What to bring: warm clothes, hammer, gloves, ear protection (optional), Lunch if staying all day, drinking water.

Note: If it is too wet to move the board walk along the trail we will have to store them at Hibou until the trail is more dry.
