About the Event

Volunteers will learn hands-on dimensional lumber construction techniques by spacing apart to replace 38 feet of boardwalk along Cedar Trail. Boardwalks and bridges prevent wet feet, protect trails from erosion, and provide essential search and rescue access. Project location will involve hiking up to 3 miles total. Work will include demolition, moving heavy planking, and installing new decking. Construction area is frequently wet and buggy, so please dress accordingly!

What to bring

Please bring your daypack, hiking/work boots, water bottle, insect repellent and work gloves (we have spare gloves if you don’t have any). Tools and equipment will be provided. Light snacks and refreshments follow the event.

Youth Instructions

Youth volunteers are welcome to attend all Community Work Days, but must be accompanied by parent or guardian for the duration of the event.
