The Gunflint’s Banadad Trail Green Up- May 5 and 12

For the past four years the carbon produced by the equipment used to maintain and groom the Banadad Ski Trail has been sequestered in tree planting.   According to the Banadad Trail Association- “tree planting is our way to insure that the maintenance and grooming of the trail remains carbon neutral”.

We are planting 400 red and white pines this spring. If you would like to  help in the tree planting, give us a call at 218-388-4487. The Banadad Tree Planting is scheduled for 10:00 AM, Saturday, May 5 and May 12.  Planting will last about four to five hours. Meet at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse, 11 Poplar Creek Drive. Tools, tree seedlings and supervision provided.

For those that need lodging for the Tree Planting, Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B and Cabins is offering a special rate of $89/person plus taxes for two nights lodging, Barbara’s famous breakfasts each morning and one trail lunch. If you need overnight accommodations, go to lodging or call 800-388-4487.
