Volunteers may perform some of the following work:

  • Using pruners and loppers to remove invasive vines
  • Hauling away vegetation and fallen tree branches

What to Bring:

  • Water
  • Gloves (We'll have some to borrow)
  • Long sleeves and long pants

Where to Meet:

The work area is on the Mount Vernon Trail just north of Old Town. See the picture for walking directions from the nearest address.
