2017 Trail Work Schedule for SWITMO

Want to do some trail work? No matter where you work, wear long pants, have work gloves, have plenty of fluids to drink, and bring a lunch. Each person working will have to sign a liability release form. Parents or guardians of those under 18 must sign for the minor.

We are a group of volunteers, made up of retired and working people. Experience with trail work is not necessary when you first begin. New volunteers are partnered with more experienced people. Most of what we do is common sense work. Only the experienced volunteers operate the chain saws and other power tools.

For information call 360-424-0407 anytime up until 7:45 a.m. the morning of the work party. Tools will be provided--hazel hoes, loppers, McLeods, Pulaskis, chain saws, brush cutters. You may bring your own tools if you wish.

If you can only work until noon, please call ahead to see if the work site will be conducive to your leaving early. Sometimes we will be working behind locked gates or far up logging roads and it would not be convenient for people to leave early.

For questions call 360-424-0407 or e-mail to
