Volunteer Work Day Tomorrow

Chainsaw trail work day on Tuesday, June 11th at 8:30am

We’re planning a morning up at the Learning Zone Tuesday, June 11 at 8:30. We’ll meet at the Nordic Center parking lot and spread out from there.

In order to get the rough cut trails in the Learning Zone ready for finish work and volunteer days, we will need to log out all of the downed trees from last winter.  There are numerous trees down across the zone, so it will take a team effort, but with a good crew hopefully we will be able to accomplish this task in one go.  

We will be meeting at 8:30 at the Nordic Center parking lot, then heading to work zones.  For any volunteers with their chainsaw certification from the Forest Service, please bring any related PPE (chaps, eye/ear protection, hardhat, gloves) you have.  There will also be a need for swampers.  Additional volunteers can carry rakes and tools to work on tread around fallen trees.

If you can’t make it this week, keep an eye out for an email or social media post as we’re likely to schedule another chainsaw workday very soon.

If you’re unaware, the National Forest Service requires a chainsaw card in order to operate a chainsaw on volunteer work days. If you don’t have saw card and are interested in getting one, now is the time. See below for the course being offered later this month (it’s likely this will be the only one this year, so take advantage of it).
