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 spend this trip working on smoothing out rocky spots in the tread of the Manaticut Point Trail in Norvin Green State Forest. We'll be reviewing tool use and safety and how to properly use tools like rock bars, pick-mattocks, and sledgehammers on some larger rocks than we have in past trips. 


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!
