Adopt-a-Trail Workday (Paw Paw)

Sunday, August 28, 2016, 9:00 AM – around 1:30 PM
It’s time again for trail-clearing on the Sims Trail, the Boardwalk, the Weston Lake Trail and the Oakridge Trail, or whichever of the park’s trails needs the most attention. Though late August is hot, trail-clearing duties are usually light, and the paw paw fruit is ripe. We will be clearing the trails of fallen limbs, and intruding branches, vines and cane.
We will meet at the Visitor Center at 9 AM and will finish in the early afternoon. Be prepared for warm weather, spiderwebs and bugs. Work gloves, light hiking boots, plenty of water, and a snack are recommended. If you have loppers, long-handled shears or bow saws, bring them along. Friends members and Park staff will provide gear if you do not have any. Please contact John Grego (friendsofcongareeswamp@gmail.com; 803-331-3366) if interested.
