COPPER HARBOR -- It's that time of the year again to grab your bug net and head to Copper Harbor as it celebrates National Trails Day on Saturday, June 5.
Volunteers should meet at the Keweenaw Adventure Company (KAC) and plan to work on the trails from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Work will include a mixture of maintenance on some of the existing trails and corridor work on the new "Manganese Creek Trail." Because early June is known for the blackflies, bug nets are highly recommended, so bring 'em if you got 'em! A limited supply will be available to volunteers on a first-come, first-served basis. Folks should also bring work gloves and drinking water.
A group mountain bike ride or hike will follow the work session at 5 p.m., followed by a free pasta dinner for all volunteers at 7:30 p.m. at the Mariner North.
The evening will be topped off with live music at Zik's Bar and Grill with "Sound-Stable Minds," a new band composed of Andrew Aubin, Tony Laux and Luke Dedo of the former "Jummy Hats" notoriety, along with Randy "the Dandy" Wakeham at 9 p.m. There will be a $3 cover and folks must be 21+.
Free tent sites in the KAC backyard if needed.
