Project Description

Don't have a lot of time, but want to give back to public lands? Here is your opportunity!  We had a partner group cancel and need your help to get the work done!  Join fellow outdoor enthusiast for some outdoor fun in the woods! Volunteers will experience teamwork and fun while learning new skills and working in the outdoors! The group will meet the BMWF crew leader at the Indian Meadows trailhead area and settle in and make camp for the day. Tuesday and Wednesday you will spend the day learning how to safely use tools and put a little sweat into maintaining some area trails.  

This project will rehabilitate an old turnpike that is several hundred feet long located about 1.5 miles in from the Indian Meadows Trailhead.  This will include reestablishing and cleaning all the ditches associated with the turnpike.  The outlet ditches may need logs sawed out in order to clean.  The old, collapsed curvert spots need to be removed and converted to breaks in the turnpike that runoff can drain through from the uphill side.  

Pulaskis, shovels and hand saws will be the tools of choice. After work relax by a campfire, play games or explore the area.  Thursday  the group will finish up a little work, pack up and drive back into civilization.

The group will be camping at a Forest Service administrative site near the main Indian Meadows trailhead. You will be using a cabin for cooking and food storage and camping in your tents nearby. A vault toilet is on site as well as potable water. 

BMWF will provide all food, tools and group gear. 


MEETING PLACE: 

Volunteers will meet the BMWF crew leader at the Indian Meadows Forest Service Admin cabin.
