National Public Lands Day: Post and Cable


We have the job for folks looking to do more than the usual litter cleanup. Defining parking areas is an important part of conservation management. Undefined parking implies no concern for the surrounding habitat or culturally sensitive areas. If folks aren't shown or naturally directed to the best place to park in the back country, they logically assume that any place is as good as the next. Volunteers on this project will erect regularly spaced wooden posts and thread them with heavy-duty cable. No experience required. You just need a little elbow grease. It is recommended to bring a hat, sunscreen, work shoes (not sandals) and clothes that can get dirty. Water, snacks, gloves, tools, and a good time will be provided for all who attend!

Audience: Suitable for adults. We love having children out at volunteer days. If you plan on bringing a child under the age of 12, you have already given yourself the most important job out there: to nurture the next generation of conservation warriors. Please supervise all children, and have them accompanied by an adult at all times.
