FOMP needs you for this work session!
Tuesday May 20 at 6:00 PM
FOMP is pleased to be holding a volunteer trail work and tree trimming/seedling release work session!
We will be working on trails that desperately need some TLC after along and busy winter! We will also be performing seedling release – his involves cutting back scrub oak growth and removing any remaining root balls that are sticking up that could injure people, horses, or bikes.
We will also hold our monthly BOD meeting in the parking lot prior to the start of activities.
FOMP and USFS provide all necessary tools. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing for performing outdoor landscaping type of work. Volunteers should bring leather gloves, a personal water supply, eye protection, sunscreen, and bug repellent. We meet rain or shine unless there is lightning active in the area. In the event that you are joining us late we try to leave a note at the trail head parking lot or you can call Jon Nordby (719.640.1347
) or Chris Tirpak (719.439.8865
) to find out where in the Preserve we are working that evening.
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.
Thanks and we hope to see you out there!
