Fall Ski Trail Workbees
Volunteers are welcome to participate in our annual fall workbee sessions. In order to maintain the trails before the ski season, OCCSA volunteers help by picking up tree branch debris from the summer and fall winds, cutting back overhanging growth, cutting and moving fallen trees, using brush-hog and mower to cut ferns and grass, etc. Bring work gloves, water, and snacks; loppers and handsaws are helpful but not required.

OCCSA will once again offer its kids' program to elementary schools in the Hart, Pentwater, Shelby, and Walkerville districts. Students in Third and Fourth Grade will learn how to cross country ski, using OCCSA's equipment free of charge, at Crystal Valley and the Pentwater Pathways.
