Fall Trail Day (Part Deux)
Mostly we’re reinstalling the Turner Boardwalk on this day (The one near I Will Allow It). We’ll be placing footings, cutting sub-structures to place the boardwalk on and then installing and levelling it. At most we’ll less than a dozen bodies because of the small work area. Please RSVP if you are attending this.
Show up by 1pm.
Pants and gloves are important as although the ground will be turned-over there was poison ivy is in the area.
UPDATE Oct 31 – Tricked not treated!!
Bring rubber boots and prepare to get muddy if you’re working on Turner Tract. It may also drizzle that day, so be prepared for that. This area isn’t going to dry out before the frost hits, so HAFTA is pushing ahead with at least getting the footings in place. There is a smaller and drier boardwalk project in Mahon to take care of if this is too much for you.
Update Nov 1st – Getting better!
- Cordless Impact Drills with an imperial socket set and/or red robertson (#2) drivers.
- Cordless Circular saw
- Cordless Angle grinder
- Eye protection
- Sturdy footwear and pants
- Change of pants/clothes
This is an important boardwalk for the forest and if we don’t get in installed we’ll be sorry during the flooding caused by winter-melts and spring rains!
Please take a moment to RSVP as we can only accommodate a dozen of volunteers on this site: firstname.lastname@example.org
