Description from NRAC website:

What is (Not) Work Week?

Each spring, driven by righteous purpose, we congregate in the forest for a full week of stewardship. The purpose: community service projects. Here are some of the projects we have completed in recent years:

  • Mostly rebuilt the Kaymoor trail from the Hole to Butcher's Branch.
  • Installed fencing and revegetated both Bridge Buttress and Junkyard Wall.
  • Installed risers at Junkyard Wall, erasing once and for all the crag’s namesake trash heap.
  • Completely reimagined and rebuilt the Tattoo Wall trail at Sandstonia.
  • Completed an entirely new trail connecting the American Alpine Club campground to climbing at North Bridge. You can easily reach two entirely different climbing areas from the campground without getting into a car.
  • Terraced and fenced the landing zone at Butcher's Branch.

Adopting the motto "Research, Education, and Adventure" in 1947, for three generations the ECP has provided the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new friends who share a willingness to accept the physical and mental challenges of outdoor exploration and adventure.
