Athens’ Trails Tree Clearing
Sunday, March 1
10:00 AM & 1:00 PM
Sells Park & Strouds Run
Athens, Ohio

The Forest Stewardship Group needs people to help clear fallen trees and limbs from the Sells Park--Strouds Run trail system. There will be a work session this Sunday, organized by the Athens Trails group.

There are two meeting times: 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Some people will work all day, but if you can only come for a few hours, we need more help in the afternoon, when we will be tackling a particularly large mess on the Rockhouse Trail in Boulder Cove.

The 10:00 AM group is meeting at Sells Park. The 1:00 PM group is meeting at a small parking area at the end of the dead-end road that runs north from Mac's Thrifty.

Participants will need sturdy work gloves, and if you have a field saw or loppers – please bring it. Other participants have already agreed to provide, and use, chainsaws. The rest of the workers will help move the large branches out of the trail as they are cut and work on smaller branches with hand saws and loppers. Ear plugs may also be advisable since we will be working near chain saws.
