All necessary tools will be provided. Bathrooms and water to refill your water bottle will also be available. Please bring a refillable water bottle. 

We will be working to clear our trails so that they are user-friendly. Additionally, we will be doing some weed pulling and planting an eastern redbud tree near the entrance. 

Participants may also volunteer to remove the invasive Autumn Olive trees. This work will be led by Eldon Winston, who is a certified herbicide applicator. Eldon will give training to teach others and give technical practice on how to manage invasive species. Participants who do this work should dress accordingly (eyewear, waterproof gloves and shoes, long pants and sleeves).
