Sipsey Wilderness Volunteer Workday, April 12
One last chance to yank privet until next Fall!
Thompson Creek, SipseyWilderness (Alabama)
8:30 a.m. at Wild South office
Our work project on April 12 will begin on the west side of Thompson Creek at the end of Forest Service Road 208. This is the side opposite the Thompson Creek trail. We will work our way in from the road, so the hike will be short.
Be prepared for off-trail hiking and ticks.
Bring a backpack with lunch, snacks, drinking water, work gloves. Hardhat if you have one.
Wear sturdy, protective clothing. We will be using sharp saws, axes and pulaskis in addition to weed wrenches. Footwear needs to be sturdy and closed-toe; pants should be long.
Tools and personal protective gear will be provided.
If the lure of a satisfying day’s work in one of the most beautiful Wildernesses anywhere is not enough to get you out there, come to see the wildflowers, and pull a little privet while you’re there!
We are grateful to our funders who make our Helping Hands Volunteer Program possible, including individual donors, a grant from The National Forest Foundation, a grant from the General Fund of the Walker Area Community Foundation, and a grant from Legacy.
