We are offering free registration to the first 25 volunteers for trail clearing. Trail clearing is done on the first Saturday of August. This year trail clearing will be done on Saturday August 3, 2019. If you are interested in trail clearing, send an email to Patrick.K.Simpson@gmail.com. If you are selected for trail clearing, more detailed information will follow as we near August.
For those that are assisting with trail clearing, the following items are recommended:
- If you have a gas powered weed wacker that you could bring with you, please let us know when you register so that we can reduce the number we will need to rent.
- Plastic or metal tined hay rake or a metal yard rake, lawn rakes don’t work, not worth bringing
- Bug repellant, bug netting
- Long Pants and long sleeves

- Ear plugs
