Starkweather woods work day: Sat 1/25 10am – 1pm

Our first work party of the New Year will take place in the beautiful Starkweather Woods adjacent to the Carpenter-Ridgeway Park. Saturated soil and several storms have resulted in downed trees over trails. This work party will focus primarily on clearing trees that are obstructing paths and stacking wood. Time permitting, we will also be cutting and treating invasive brush.
What to Wear/Bring:  Wear appropriate clothing for the weather (dress in layers). Wear sturdy footwear and work gloves. Bring drinking water. Head, ear and eye protection are recommended. And, most importantly, bring a good attitude—there are few things as cathartic as embracing what can be accomplished in a good work party!
Work Party Leader: David Pulkowski (
