w50_logoPick a project:

Thompson Creek Trail – Crosscut sawyers needed to remove a large blowdown from the trail about 1 mile in.  Non-crosscutters needed also for support and swamping.  This crew will also re-plant the trail 206 signpost at White Oak Branch.  Tools will be provided.

Borden Creek – This crew will remove the old kiosk (roofed sign board) at the curved bridge, then naturalize campsites along the west side of Borden Creek.  The gate at the top of the hill will be opened so that a truck can be driven to the bridge and the old, dismantled  kiosk  trucked out.  Bring any tools that can be used in taking apart a large, standing wooden structure, such as pry bars.

Bring:

  • lunch
  • drinking water
  • snacks
  • work gloves
  • hard hat if you have one

Wear:

  • comfortable clothes for hiking and appropriate layering for weather
  • sturdy boots or shoes with good tread
  • long pants and sleeves

Be prepared for:

  • hiking while carrying all tools and personal gear
  • rain, if it’s in the forecast

After signing up, meet at the Wild South office within the Warrior Mountains Trading Company (map link in Wild South office above) at 11312 AL Hwy. 33, Moulton, AL at 8:30 a.m.
