Please join us for our second work party of the year being held (again) in the beautiful Starkweather Woods adjacent to the Carpenter-Ridgeway Park. We will be picking up where we left off with clearing downed trees from trails as well as cutting and treating invasive buckthorn.

What to Wear/Bring: Please bring lopers, pruners, or handsaws if you own them. We have a limited supply of these and whatever you can bring will be helpful.
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 Leaders:
Jeff Steele & David Pulkowski
