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
SAFETY: This comes first. If there is a forecast for heavy rain and strong winds, the work party will be either postponed or canceled. Work parties are also canceled if the forest is too dry to work, if the temperatures are high and we plan to work in exposed areas and if there is fire danger or smoke hazard. If such conditions are present and you are not on the SWITMO e-mail list, please call the number below to make sure the work party has not been canceled.
For information call 360-424-0407
anytime up until 7:30 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
