Let's show some love for the trails we so love!!!
If EVERY AOC MEMBER WOULD VOLUNTEER JUST 4 HOURS ONCE A YEAR, WHAT A DIFFERENCE WE COULD MAKE!! There is a job ALL physical capabilities can do.
Volunteers perform trail maintenance on the 20+miles of trails at the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Kennesaw Mountain Trail Club provides Crew Leader supervision, tools, work gloves (or bring your own), water and snacks. Volunteers should wear work clothes and comfortable closed toed shoes.
We will stay together working as a group & follow the instructions of our Crew Leader(s). We will learn the procedures of how to make our trails better for today & for the future.
Arrive by 8:00am to allow time for sign-in & getting gloves, water & snacks. We will group near the registration table at the end of the Pigeon Hill parking lot. There are NO restroom facilities at this site.
This is the write-up by the Kennesaw Mountain Trail Club:
August 10, 2019 Trail Work Day Plan
Registration at Burnt Hickory Road parking lot.
This plan is to continue repair to the Noses Creek trail from the Burnt Hickory parking area to the creek. For the most part the trail is ok for hikers but in really bad shape for maintenance trucks/trailers and law enforcement and emergency vehicles. We’re almost done with this stretch.
We should be able to salvage a lot of rocks for many other projects in the Park. During work, we will have to be aware of hikers for safety reasons.
plan noses creek 8-10-19
We will be parking in the field at the end of the parking lot.
Don’t start what you can’t finish. If done early, help another crew trash the eroded areas. Make it fun, and above all –BE SAFE!
VOLUNTEER!! YOUR PARK NEEDS YOU!!
Please dress for work-long sleeve shirt, long pants & closed-toed shoes. All tools, material and equipment are provided. KMTC has used gloves for your use during work (you may choose to bring your own gloves). We also provide water and snacks. Be prepared to hike to and from the work site.
We're looking forward to a safe and productive Trail Day.
Thank you for your participation and support in saving our trails for our enjoyment & for future generations!!!
Next KMTC Trails Work Day is on Saturday, September 14th. Please mark it on your calendar!
