Trail Restoration At Kharghar Valley
Help restore and maintain the beautiful Kharghar Valley Trail, a hidden path at the end of Kharghar Golf Course in Navi Mumbai.
Monsoon is a time when the trail transforms itself and is surrounded by small rivulets, bright wildflowers and wild vegetables. However, it’s also a time when the trail faces damage through trampling caused by visitors. The trail restoration activity helps reinforce the trail and undo the damage on the soil caused by compaction and erosion. This initiative was started in 2017 by iNaturewatch Foundation and the restoration project covers a 700 meter long nature trail.
How can volunteers help?
This week we will work on narrowing the pathway and support it with curb stones. These stones will be white washed. Also channels for streams will be developed so that the streams do not overflow on the road. This is a laborious work so volunteers who are up for some tough job could sign up for this event.
