Location change!!!

Join the trail crew for a day of routine trail maintenance. Equipment & tools will be furnished. Bring lunch, water and personal tools. Long pants, long sleeves, are recommended. Public is invited. Leisure

From Florida Trail Association:

To the membership of the Florida Trail Association:

Due to the current Federal government shutdown, all Forest Service personnel, active agreements and contracts are furloughed as of October 1st, 2013.  This means that our Sponsored Volunteer Agreement is suspended until funding has been restored. 

All volunteers operating under this agreement must suspend work immediately.  This includes all volunteer trail maintenance and training activities covered by the Sponsored Volunteer Agreement.  Worker's compensation and tort liability coverage for volunteer activities is also suspended.  Until further notice, this means that there will be no trail maintenance on the FNST.  There will be no trainings provided to our members until the budget issues are resolved. 

The FNST is not closed to hikers.

      I am not sure on the finish time but if there is a time that you need to leave that will be ok. Generally we are done around 1PMish or so.

      9-12 would be fine. However, we may have to relocate from Chuluota Wilderness due to the Govt shutdown (no FNST maintenance allowed). Will update by Wednesday evening.

      Hi Bo: relocating from the Chuluota? To a state forest? I am still deciding if I can chip in or not, and the location matters for my roundtrip (low budget).

    Sounds like an opportunity to visit local park and contribute to FTA mission

    I am intrested in starting this, but I hano no tools. I live in an apartment, no need for tools at all. will I be useful?

    October 5, 2013

    • Hiker E.

      Hi Becky. Short answer: YES!!! You will be helpful. The FTA provides all tools needed including gloves and safety glasses. Please show and join us for some good trail maintenance. You will have a good time and help maintain our trails. Bring water for yourself and a sammich for your lunch. PB and Jam is what I take. Ed
