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, and getting to the Ampitheater (Visitor Center picnic area) which is 5-10 minute walk from the overflow parking lot. We will group near the registration table at the overflow parking lot. The restroom facilities will be open at the Visitor Center.
This is the write-up by the Kennesaw Mountain Trail Club:
Work Plan December 14th, 2019 Trail Day
December 14, 2019 Trail Work Day Plan
Registration at Old 41 parking lot and at amphitheater.
The plan is to do light maintenance on many of the trails in the north section of the Park. We will do as many as we can with the number of crew leaders we have. Work will require lots of hiking. The work will be cleaning silt out of old knicks, rolling grade dips, and old water bars, deberming, cleaning leaves out of ditches, cutting branches and vegetation encroaching on the trails, checking and repairing any loose steps, cleaning loose gravel and dirt off steps, trashing new social trails, repairing fences, picking up trash, etc.
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!!!
VOLUNTEER!! YOUR PARK NEEDS YOU!!
