SAWS NAVAL ACADEMY VOLUNTEER PROJECT 3: RACCOON BRANCH STRUCTURE HAUL- AUG 3/4

August 3 @ 9:00 am - August 4 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Join the midshipmen from the Naval Academy on August 3 & 4 in Raccoon Branch Wilderness near Marion, Virginia. We will dismantle and haul-out an old fire grate, picnic table, and privy structure! For this two-day project, we’ll be partnering with the Backcountry Horseman of America and we’d love your help on either day! The project is mildly strenuous, with a couple of miles of hiking and lifting required. Join us for the day(s) and enjoy a refreshing treat afterward! Time and location are TBD but anticipate 9am, Appalachian Trail @ Dickey Gap for day 1  & 9am @ Raccoon Branch Campground in Sugar Grove, VA for day 2.

BRING: Sunscreen, bug spray, personal hard hat, gloves, and safety glasses if desired, but these will be provided
WEAR: Sturdy shoes/work boots,
long pants
EAT: Bring a lunch, at least two liters of water, and pack snacks
(we will provide a treat at the end!)
