A COMPLIMENTARY LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE NATIONAL FOREST FOUNDATION.

This activity is open to all volunteers, including sponsored groups. For those volunteering for trail work for the first time, please identify yourself to the registrar so we can arrange for a Trail Boss to provide instruction and proper tools. Please bring your personal protective equipment listed below.
