*** RAIN DELAY: Due to expected rain on Saturday, we're moving to Sunday, November 24th, at 11 AM! Hope everyone can join us then! ***
We need folks with gas or battery-powered leaf blowers; gas or battery-powered string trimmers, garden loppers/shears, a couple of large plastic trash cans (large gray “Brute”-style cans or equivalent), and folks who’d just like to help carry cuttings and other natural debris to the composting pile, on-site. Please, no saws of any kind! — we will have a chain-saw operator who will assist us as needed, if there are some larger branches to be hauled to the pile. All volunteers should wear long-sleeved old clothing (that you don’t mind getting scratched up by thorny vines), sturdy work shoes, and bring your favorite pair of heavy-duty garden or work gloves. Don’t forget to dress for the weather, and bring plenty of water and a high-energy snacks and/or lunch! We’ll meet at the Grundy Forest Trailhead at 9 am and shuttle to the CCC site. Please RSVP to FSC Trails Chair Bruce Blohm, [masked]. Help us make the CCC site beautiful for the thousands of Park visitors who are now coming to see this remarkable interpretive area in South Cumberland State Park!
