What We’re Doing
Invasive trees and brush need to be eradicated. To promote a healthy native ecosystem, we will continue to cut, treat, and burn invasive brush species.
Join us each day, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday.
We need swampers (volunteers who haul brush for the fire) and brush-cutters. Certified sawyers are welcome and encouraged to bring their chainsaw and PPE.
To help us plan this event with your needs in mind, please register before or by noon on Thursday, February 10, 2022. Limit: 50 volunteers – so don’t wait to register!
All Talents and Abilities Welcome!
No experience is necessary and there’s a role for volunteers of all ages and abilities. Hands-on training provided by certified and friendly volunteer crew leaders will get you into the mix right away.
Your contribution of time and energy is welcome for any part of the event.
Parking, Volunteer Check-In
Additional info will be emailed to participants by Thursday, Feb. 10
What to Bring

• Clothing to dress in layers (for warmth and to keep dry).
• A daypack, sunscreen, and leather gloves.
• A water bottle(s) and a thermos filled with a warm beverage.
• Certified sawyers are welcome and encouraged to bring your own saw and PPE.
