Help Lester Park trails

The Duluth Cross Country Ski Club is putting the call out for volunteers to help clear and rebuild the Lester Park ski trails that were hit hard by the June deluge and flood.

All you have to do is show up, dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, bring water and wear eye protection and gloves.

Cleanup sessions are set for 9 a.m. to noon today; 5-8 p.m. Tuesday and 4-7 p.m. Wednesday. Today and Wednesday, meet near the playground, with sessions focusing on clearing gravel and debris. Bring a wheelbarrow if you have one.

On Tuesday, meet at the main parking lot and the session will focus on weed clearing and anyone with weed trimmers is asked to bring them.
