Cranal Road Cleanup in the Bankhead National Forest
The 23rd annual National Public Lands Day is September 24, 2016. This is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands, aimed at connecting people to public lands in their community, inspiring environmental stewardship, and encouraging use of public lands for education, recreation and general health.
Join Wild South in the Bankhead National Forest on this day to clean up roadside trash from the Cranal Road, which forms the southern boundary of the spectacular Sipsey Wilderness Area. This road is 10 miles long, so we will need lots of volunteers to help!
This will be a fun day, with a picnic lunch served midday at the Sipsey Recreation Area lower parking lot. This is a family friendly event, so please feel welcome to bring the kids! Many hands make light work, so the more volunteers we can recruit, the sooner we can finish the job after lunch and have time for a hike to one of the waterfalls along Sipsey Fork, if you so desire.
