Free Chainsaw Class for Trail Crew Volunteers

Below is the invite for the certification training class for those chainsaw fiends who want to be a part of our chainsaw crew. This is a very popular class and is being provided by the USFS free of charge. We hope your participation means you’ll help out with trail clearing, brushing, etc. from time to time.

Remember that your prior certification lasts three years, so check your saw card to make sure yours doesn’t expire soon. Also, you need a CPR/first aid certificate to enroll. Last time we were able to do that online for about $20.

Thanks to Josh McNulty and his crew for offering this class.
