Eagle Scout Project September 2018

Special Trail Day for an Eagle Scout Project

FOMP needs you for this trail work session!

Saturday, September 15th at 9:00 AM

For this Eagle Scout Project, we will be working on an eroded trail near the Monument Rock. Please park at the main lot at Mt Herman/Nursery Road  https://goo.gl/maps/5J1yar6b81x or Red Rocks/Mt Herman lot at https://goo.gl/maps/vj6UyuH6sek and walk on the trails to the location, please do not walk on the road.

Check the website too! http://www.fomp.org

The rest of the info you need: FOMP and USFS provide all necessary tools. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing for performing outdoor landscaping type of work. Volunteers should wear long pants and sturdy shoes, and bring leather gloves, a hat, a personal water supply, eye protection, sunscreen, and bug repellent. We meet rain or shine unless there is lightning active in the area.

We make every effort to accommodate volunteer preferences and abilities at each event. Generally, we perform activities such as water bar building or renovation, trail renovation, maintenance, and trimming, etc. So, pretty much everything from trimming back scrub oak or digging lots of dirt to moving boulders. We assign duties based on interest and capabilities. Kids are welcome to join their parents; however, we do ask that you evaluate whether this is an appropriate activity for your child or not.

Be aware all participants will need to sign a wavier before than can begin any trail work.

Thanks, and we hope to see you out there!
