EARLY TRAIL WORK OPPORTUNITY (4 hrs.)
There is a volunteer project this Saturday September 23rd from 9:00 am-1:00 pm! We are meeting at Tibble Fork Reservoir then splitting off into groups to help with trail closure and maintenance, litter pickup, and fence repair/construction. This is a great project for scouts that need a conservation service project, anyone interested in trail work, or for anyone that loves being outdoors. It will be chilly that morning so please dress accordingly and bring work gloves. Feel free to bring friends and family, everyone is welcome! See attached flyer for more details, the link below can be used for directions to Tibble Fork.
FOREST SERVICE TRAIL WORK OPPORTUNITIES
Please do not call the Forest Service unless you are not in the Salt Lake Ranger District. If you are not doing your trail work in the Salt Lake area, you will need to call the Forest Service office in your area directly. If Forest Service work is not available to you other trail work projects (e.g. State or your local City Parks) can be substituted with permission from the Wasatch 100 Race Committee.
PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST WEEK OR TWO TO SCHEDULE AND DO YOUR TRAIL WORK! SOMETHING COULD HAPPEN TO CANCEL OR DELAY YOUR WORK DAY AND NO EXTENSIONS WILL BE GIVEN!!!
TO: ALL TRAIL WORK VOLUNTEERS
The following suggestions can help improve your productivity during volunteer projects. Weather conditions are unpredictable and can change quickly during your work project, also the type of hand tools used require appropriate clothing and some personal items that will enhance your safety and comfort.
Required: Long pants, Boots (light weight hiking boots with good support and traction), leather work gloves (please no cloth gardening gloves), 2 liters of water per volunteer (please limit soda and sports drinks), light lunch and snacks, Day pack.
Suggested: Extra Tee shirt, rain gear, sunglasses, water, and a full brim hat to keep the sun off your head. Group leaders please include a First Aid kit, emergency space blanket, spare work gloves, toilet items, and sunscreen.
An important part of any outdoor experience is being prepared. All volunteers are required to wear long pants, and boots and gloves to allow for safe and a more comfortable, productive work experience. Personal items such as extra clothes, water, and food will need to be carried in a day pack leaving hands free to carry tools to the project site. Safety during your volunteer project is our first priority.
