Project Description: 


Trail Maintainers in Action


Everyone is welcome to join - beginners and experts alike. Shoot us an email if you're interesting in coming out on this work trip!


We'll be teaching an introduction to trail maintenance work including proper blazing, clipping, lopping, and some intermediate saw work. Throughout the day we'll work to open up the overgrown Hewitt-Butler Trail so that hikers can pass safely and easily.


Bring: Sturdy shoes, water, lunch/snacks, and tough clothing appropriate for outdoor work (including gloves and safety glasses if you have them). Raingear and warm layers depending on forecast. Be prepared for some good walking and wholesome outdoor exercise!
