What Kind of Work Will We Do?
During trail construction, our General Volunteers will likely be doing trail finishing work, and occasionally brush cutting / clearing:
- Trail finish work - including raking, shoveling, root removal, feature construction and compacting
- Brush cutting and clearing - this is the first step in trail construction - this helps clear the way for the mini ex
Occasionally, we'll also have the other types of needs:
- Bridge / boardwalk / gate installation * construction - we will occasionally have construction work to do
- Signage, cleanup and other general work - we will occasionally have other types of work like sign installation, trail cleanup, weed whipping, etc.
