Volunteer Trail Maintenance
September 18, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
As of September 16th, the Stanislaus National Forest is reopened after being closed due to fire danger, so we will be having our regular third-Saturday-of-the-month Volunteer Trail Maintenance Morning this Saturday, September 18!
All trail building mornings follow this pattern: Please meet at the Forest Service Ranger Station in Hathaway Pines at 8:30 am. After a brief safety orientation by Jeffery Hilson, our Stanislaus Forest Service Trail Manager, we will carpool to the section of the trail we will work that day. Since it often gets warm as the morning progresses, please bring layers, gloves, hat, sunscreen, bug repellant, and water. Long pants are suggested as we encounter poison oak occasionally. If you have a favorite garden tool like loppers, bring those, but we will have tools for everyone. Folks from eight to eighty-eight are invited; children should have adult supervision. We wrap up by 11:30am, sometimes a little earlier. If you have another obligation that day, feel free to depart sooner as needed. Please bring a mask during this time of Covid. If we have more than 10 volunteers, we will break into two groups and work on different sections of the trail system. When we are separated and working on the trail outdoors we won’t need the masks, but thanks for bringing one for when we are closer together.
Volunteer Trail Maintenance Mornings happen the third Saturday of the month from May to October 2021.
