East Coast Trail Association – Maintenance Outing

Maintenance Outing:
Trail: Bear Cove Point Path (Maintenance Outing)
Date: Saturday July 9, 2011

In-town Meeting Time & Place: 8:00am at the in-town meeting point in the Village Mall parking lot – on the corner of Columbus Drive and Topsail Road.

Please let the hike organizer, Anand, know by 6 pm on Thursday July 7 if you plan to attend so enough tools will be present. Include your phone number in case of cancellation due to weather. Also, please indicate how many people you can carry in your car, or if you need a ride to the in-town meeting point or after.

Description of work: We will work north from the lighthouse. The work includes brushing, lopping and pruning.

Please bring: Work gloves, enough water and a lunch. If you have safety glasses, please bring them – if not, we will provide you with a pair. Other desirable equipment includes: a Fox 40 whistle, bug repellent, sunscreen, hat and earplugs in case you are going to be working around the weed whacker. Long pants and long-sleeved shirts are recommended and will protect you from vegetation scratches.

Bring rain gear as well because if it has been raining, trees and brush will be wet and we will be hiding the material we cut in the brush.

If you have First Aid/Safety Training, please let us know so that we can keep track of that information.
