»Trail Maintenance at Cedar Ridge PreserveTrail Maintenance at Cedar Ridge PreserveHello everyone.  We look forward to seeing new smiling faces and hard workers to help out on the trails and flora and fauna. We meet at 9 AM on May 16th, 2015 down at the Preserve, and will work and walk until about 12 PM.  It's fun and beautiful and we have ordered excellent weather to help upgrade some of the beautiful walking trails just south of Dallas. The address is 7171 Mountain Creek Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75249. It's a great morning workout, and the scenery is exceptional. No tools are required (maybe gloves), just show up and be ready to lend a hand or two. We'll work from 9 AM to 12 or earlier, and then walk around the preserve and admire the wildflowers and fauna! Bring some water, for sure. It's on Saturday the 16th of May. Please see the Cedar Ridge Preserve website for directions and info. If you want to carpool down there, just text me or email me.

»Wilderness Navigation Class - Part 1Wilderness Navigation Class - Part 1Learn to find your way in the wilderness in this comprehensive two-night class. Topics include buying maps, how to read maps, how not to get lost, what to do if you do get lost, different kinds of compasses and how to use your compass. We'll discuss GPS devices, but our main focus will be how to use a map and compass so you're not trusting your navigation (and life) to something that takes batteries. If you have a compass, bring it to the class. If you don't have one, we will have an extra you can use and will show you what to look for when you purchase your own. The class is offered at the First United Methodist Church, Richardson, 503 N. Central Expressway, Richardson, TX, Room 230.  Click here for directions to the location from Central Expressway. The class will start promptly at 6:30 PM and will finish at about 8:45 PM. The total fee for the two-night class is $40 or $35 for Sierra Club members. Handouts are included. Bring a pen or pencil for taking notes and for navigation practice exercises.  A reservation isn't necessary. Just show up. Part 2 of the class is the following night (Thursday, May 28), same time and place. A day hike with a class instructor will be offered to class participants who want to practice their new skills.
