Laurel Mountain Volunteer Group Work Day on Sept 25th

This is Laurel Mountain Volunteer Group’s final group work day of 2021, and coincides with Public Lands Day. 

Plan to meet at the Laurel Mountain warming hut at 9:30AM to work within the Laurel Mountain division of Forbes State Forest. If you’re a new volunteer to Forbes, please sign up online to be a DCNR conservation volunteer.

Projects for this work day include:

Rearmoring wet sections of Fish Run Trail (between old gas well and Linn Run Road) ~200 yards
Remove small amount of graffiti from Beam Rocks
Brushing back Darr and Brant Trails (entire trails)
Firewood cutting
And more!

Please come prepared to the work day with sturdy boots, long pants, work gloves, eye protection, and any other comfort items you may need. Please note that we will not be hosting a volunteer appreciation dinner this year, however, we will instead have volunteer ‘snack bags’ for you to grab and take with you out onto the trails. These snack bags will include prepackaged trail mix, cheese, meat sticks, granola bars, etc. As always, water and gatorade will be available. Our friends at REI have graciously donated several prizes to be raffled off at this work day as well.

If you have any questions please reach out to either Rachel Mahony or Ed Callahan at Forbes District Office, 724-238-1200
