Bonneyville Mill
The Bonneyville Mill Trail flagging has been completed and the Elkhart County Parks And Recreation Department has approved the layout. The ground breaking workday has been scheduled for Sunday April 7. The Ground Breaking Ceremony is at 9AM at the Briarpatch Shelter.  If you are planning on working on the trail on Sunday we will be having a mandatory tool training class provided by the Elkhart County Parks and Recreation Department at 10AM.

After the training we will have lunch and work on the trail.  Come out and join us.  As with all NIMBA workdays we will have the tools you need to help us build the trail. To see a planning map of the trail check out the trail page.

We plan on having weekly trail build days at Bonneyvillle Mill this spring. Watch the Facebook Page and the NIMBA Website workdays page for future workdays. If you miss the tool training on Sunday April 7, we will provide the training for you at each of the workdays.
