National Public Lands Day, Volunteer Opportunities
From Rachael Mahony, Forbes State Forest:
Please save the date for Saturday, September 25, 2021 – this day coincides with National Public Lands Day! Plan to meet at the Laurel Mountain warming hut at 9:30AM to work within the Laurel Mountain division of Forbes State Forest. If you are a new volunteer and need directions to the meeting location, please copy and paste the following address into Google Maps: 1120 Laurel Summit Road, Boswell, PA.
Projects for this work day include:
- Rearmoring Mainline Trail (finish upper section by roundhouse lot)
- Rearmoring wet section of Fish Run Trail (between old gas well and Linn Run Road) ~200 yards
- Remove small amount of graffiti from Beam Rocks
- Brushing back Darr and Brant Trails (entire trails)
- Firewood cutting
Please come prepared to the work day with sturdy boots, long pants, work gloves, eye protection, and any other comfort items you may need. Please note that we will not be hosting a volunteer appreciation dinner this year, however, we will instead have volunteer ‘snack bags’ for you to grab and take with you out onto the trails. These snack bags will include prepackaged trail mix, cheese, meat sticks, granola bars, etc. As always, water and gatorade will be available. Our friends at REI have graciously donated several prizes to be raffled off at this work day as well.
