We are rescheduling the work day again. Since Nov 24th would be during Thanksgiving weekend, and people may be traveling, we are planning to move this work day to Dec 8th, instead. 

If you cannot make it for the Dec 8th date, please cancel your registration following the directions in the FAQ at the end of this event description.

I'll also send an email to all volunteers registered for this work day.

Our December 1st work day will be held at Sabercat Historical Park Restoration Site 4, Mastodon Restoration Site. The location for the December 8th work day will be announced in the week before that work day.

Thanks!
