Join Wild South staff and volunteers for a day of pulling privet along Thompson Creek and Trail 206 in the Sipsey Wilderness.  We will hike in to where we left off last winter, which is close to Ship Rock, about 2.5 miles from the trailhead.

This work project was originally scheduled for December 14, but has been rescheduled to the 21st due to the forecast for rain.  So, that puts us back on our regular third-Saturday routine.

Be prepared to hike at least 5 miles roundtrip on Trail 206 carrying all personal gear and hand tools.  The work will be performed between the trail and Thompson Creek.  Click  here for a description by Sipsey Wilderness Hiking Club of  the Thompson Creek Trail.

Bring lunch, snacks, drinking water, work gloves and fierce determination.

Personal protection gear such as hard hats and hunter orange vests will be provided, but bring your own if you have it.  All tools (weed wrenches, saws, loppers, pruners, etc.) will be provided.

Let us know you’re coming by clicking on the sign up link above.  This also works for asking questions.

Wild South’s Helping Hands volunteer program is made possible by our individual donors, by a grant from The National Forest Foundation, by a grant from the General Fund of the Walker Area Community Foundation, and by a grant from Legacy.  And we are grateful.
