Forwarded from an email;

Trail Volunteer Day on February 12 and March 5, 2005.

The Georgetown Ranger District plans to have a volunteer trail workdays

on

February 12 and March 5, 2005. We plan to work on trail maintenance and

trim back encroaching vegetation on the Mace Mill Loop Trail (#3)and the

Rock Creek Loop Trail (#1) and some trail construction work on other

trails

if there are enough volunteers.

For the trail volunteer work, please bring boots with good traction and

ankle support, a lunch, canteen and work gloves. If you have your own

hardhat and eye protection, please bring. If you do not have the

hardhat

and eye protection, we do have loaners. We have a limited number of

tools

for the volunteers to borrow, but if you have your favorite handsaw,

loppers or clippers, etc. you can bring your own tools.

We will be meeting near the Mace Mill Staging Area information at 8:30

AM

on February 12 and March 5 before we head to the work projects. We will

have a safety briefing and make project assignments before heading to

work

site(s). If it is raining on February 12, we will postpone our workday

until March 5, 2004. If it is raining on March 5, we will schedule a

new

date. We plan to work until about 3:00 PM, but if people need to leave

earlier they certainly can.

We would appreciate a RSVP if you plan to work with us by February 10.

You

can send us an email at jjue@fs.fed.us or you can give me a call at

(530)

333-5550. Please share this opportunity with your friends. We greatly

appreciate all of the volunteers' efforts in keeping our trails in good

shape and for helping us to provide trail recreation opportunities.

Check with Jon Jue. That was his email that I posted. The forestry dept. is leary of having the public use chain saws during "work days", a liability thing.
