We will be working through a section of the North Creek trail. Depending on how much material needs to be brought to and from the site, you may be hiking up to 3 miles.
If you have questions or concerns about the hike, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We will have a safety and tool talk in the morning before we head out on trail. We may be hiking in materials such as gravel and debris to and from the work site. Expect a short hike into the work area (15-20 minutes) and then moderately strenuous work at the site using a variety of materials & hand tools. Plan to eat lunch on the trail.
Bring your lunch, snacks and plenty of water. An extra set of clothes to change into at the end of the day is a good idea, as we will be working in a potentially muddy area.
Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)
Sturdy work gloves (more than one pair is a good idea)
Long sleeved shirts and long pants required
Rain gear as appropriate for the weather
Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)
TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses
From the east or west, take I-5 to Terwilliger Blvd.
Head east on Terwilliger Blvd. until you reach the Tryon Creek Natural Area entrance (on the right).
Find parking near the Nature Center. We will meet at the observatory deck between 8:00-8:30am.
The crew leader may decide to cancel the work party the day before, based on weather conditions. We will not work in high winds, excessive rain/heat, or potential ice events. Volunteers are advised to check their emails the night before in case there are unanticipated work party cancellations.
