Event description

Description

Join the Highlanders Chapter in completing a reroute in Seminole State Forest that will eliminate 3 miles of road walk from the Florida Trail. Camping on Saturday night is optional will be available at no cost to participants at the Clearwater Recreation Area. Lunch will be provided at the work site on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast will be provided at Clearwater Lake for those camping. Participants may show up for any portion of the weekend that they are available.

On Saturday and Sunday mornings we will meet at the new trail crossing on Bottany Woods Drive at 9AM. Our focus will be clearing the new trail corridor. The bulk of the work will entail grubbing large palmetto roots using pulaskis (mattocks), hand sawing and lopping. Please be aware before signing up that clearing new trail and grubbing will be more physically demanding than maintaining existing trail.

Hiking boots (description below) and long pants are required. Long-sleeve t-shirts are recommended.

This event is a free volunteer opportunity. Join our crew and have fun!
