The Chargers and Rechargers Hiking Club, part of the Watauga Task Force, is sponsoring MST Big Dig #2 on September 20 (Saturday) and 21 (Sunday). All tools and equipment will be furnished. Work site on the Blue Ridge Parkway is in scenic Goshen Creek Gorge, four miles north of Blowing Rock at milepost 287. Volunteer headquarters is in Price Park Campground, south of Blowing Rock. (All access to the work site is from Blowing Rock because the Parkway is closed north of Goshen Creek Gorge.)
