This week’s Work Party will consist of brush trimming, weed-whacking, mowing, and general trail repairs. Bring loppers or sturdy rakes. They will be removing some accumulated leaves. Tools will be provided if you can’t bring your own.
Members advise volunteers to dress for the weather and be aware that this is tick and annoying insects season, so a insect repellent containing Deet could keep the critters at bay. Also be aware that poison ivy can be encountered along the trails. Sturdy work gloves a necessity, waterproof shoes or boots recommended. One never knows, the weather could get hot and muggy, so be sure to bring plenty to drink and maybe a snack. Keeping hydrated in this weather is very important.
They will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Riverview Park basketball courts across from 724 Howe Ave (Rt 110).
