Brush piles provide numerous benefits to a variety of wildlife. Volunteers are needed on Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 10 A.M. - 3 P.M


Meeting location: Meet at the CCC Bridge State Forest Campground parking area. We will carpool from the parking lot to the work site.

What to bring:  We will be moving large logs and branches so closed-toe boots, a long-sleeve shirt, and long pants are recommended.  Attendees are also encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle, although bottled water will be provided throughout the day. These projects will take place rain or shine unless there is severe weather so please dress accordingly.
