Art in the Miners Park Trail Talkoot for National Trails Day

Due to rain on Saturday, the Talkoot is rescheduled for Thursday, June 9 at 4:30pm, meeting at the City Compost Site.

The Friends of the Miners Memorial Heritage Park invites the public to participate in an Aurora “Art in the Miners Park” Loop work session on Saturday, June 4, National Trails Day from 9 a.m. to noon, meeting at the Miners Park Red Devil Trailhead located at the Ironwood Area School District’s Lorenson Baseball Field on Ayer Street.

The focus of the Art in the Miners Park Trail Talkoot is to maintain and spread wood chips on the one mile trail.
