About the event

We will be helping brush this trail to clear away alder and other shrubs and trees. Volunteers will be using loppers and handsaws to remove the brush from the trail corridor. All cut debris must be dragged off trail out of sight with the “white eyes” (cut ends) facing away from the trail. All cuts must be made either at the base or joint of a branch. Clear the corridor approximately 1 pulaski length from the edge of the trail (use best judgment). Care will need to be taken to identify areas where the debris can be taken as some areas will not allow due to steepness. Volunteers who attend will receive a coupon for $5 off any food or drink at The Loft at Midnight Sun Brewing Co!

HIKING INFO (how long will the hike into the project site be, and what sort of terrain):

This is a moderate to strenuous hike with significant elevation gain. Hiking distance could be up to 5 miles throughout the day.
