Clark Green Neighbors event calendar
Vancouver Lake Day Work Party
Meet at the end of the 501 Spur road past the regional park at the northwest end of the lake.
WTA helped Clark County build this barrier-free trail back in 2014. Come join us to re-gravel the trail's surface.
About the Area
Vancouver Lake Regional Park is a great place to hit the beach and have fun on the water. Just west of the lake, a gentle barrier-free path now leads through a cottonwood forest with vibrant greens in spring, beautiful fall yellows and birds nearly all year.
What to Expect
We'll have fun, work hard and make a difference! No experience is necessary.
We laid gravel on this trail back in 2015; it's time to spruce it up with a new layer. We'll be clearing the trail of any debris, then hauling and spreading gravel that's staged at the trailhead.
We will start at the trailhead and work our way in.
