We want to thank our friends at REI who plan and manage their volunteer stewardship programs for inviting the AOC to partner with them in this worthy ~3-hour trail maintenance project. Our "AOC subgroup" will be working with their expert personnel and other volunteers to improve existing trails in the lovely Jake and Bull Mountain recreation area near Dahlonega. (It's in the Chattahoochee Nat'l Forest, just east of Amicalola Falls State Park.) No previous experience is required! Instruction, tools, safety gear, etc. will be provided by our friendly hosts.
IMPORTANT! All volunteers for this event (whether or not you're an Atlanta Outdoor Club member) should formally Pre-register via the REI Website by clicking this link and completing their online signup form: REI Registration for Jake & Bull Mtn Volunteer Project
Although this event is not directly sponsored by the Atlanta Outdoor Club we request that you ALSO record your participation as an AOC member-volunteer by clicking, etc. at the base of this article.
At about noontime after the trail work is done, volunteers are invited to caravan with our REI hosts to their "Trailfest Outreach" headquarters in nearby Dahlonega at the big annual festival on the town square.
