Mobile Skills Crew Trailbuilding Event, Taylor County
September 15, 2015 @ 8:00 am - September 20, 2015 @ 12:00 pm
Early fall in the Northwoods promises to be a treat, both in the field and around the campfire! We return to the Rib Lake Segment and continue crafting new trail in this wonderful glacial landscape.
The IATA provides food, tools, and campsites free to all who volunteer. No previous experience is necessary; training is provided by certified volunteer crew leaders. There will be roles for all ages and abilities.
Your contribution is welcome for any part of the event or the entire project. Work begins on Tuesday, Sept. 15, and concludes Sunday, Sept. 20. Trail construction activities begin each day around 8:00 a.m. and typically wrap up between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. On Sunday, work ends by noon.
What to Bring:
- We recommend a long-sleeve shirt and pants for trail work. Plan for variable weather – bring warm layers and rain gear.
- Sturdy hiking or work boots (no tennis shoes) and leather work gloves.
- Day pack, water bottles, insect repellant, sunscreen and a hat.
- If camping, bring a headlamp, tent, sleeping gear and toiletries. Consider bringing a lawn chair; you’ll appreciate having it to relax around the fire in comfortable clothes at the end of the day.
We love dogs, but we ask that you not bring them to this event. Woolly mammoths are welcome.
