It’s trailwork time in Sipsey Wilderness and YOU are invited!

Wild South’s next Helping Hands volunteer workday will be a Wilderness 50th Stewardship Project


Saturday, September 20

Wild South office

8:30 a.m.

Sign up or ask questions HERE!

Trail:  Sipsey Wilderness Trail #207, the Braziel Creek Trail.

Distance:  At least 5 miles

Description of activity:  Using handtools to cut away encroaching vegetation and to remove trail blockages.

Be prepared to hike on a wilderness trail while carrying tools and performing trail maintenance.  There will be blackberry vines, so long sleeves are recommended, as are closed-toe shoes.

Tools and hardhats will be provided.  If you have a hardhat, hand pruners or loppers you are welcome to bring them.

Bring a backpack with lunch, snacks, drinking water and work gloves.

We will cross Borden Creek.  The water should be pretty shallow.

We are grateful to our funders who make our Helping Hands Volunteer Program possible:  Major donors, individual donors, The National Forest Foundation, The Walker Area Community Foundation.
