SAWS Naval Academy Volunteer Work Day

August 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Give back to your public lands by joining the SAWS Naval Academy Crew on August 12th to cut back vegetation along the Cellar Mountain trail in St. Mary’s Wilderness. Midshipmen from the SAWS-US Naval Academy partnership will be leading this work day as a capstone project for the SAWS Professional Training Event. We will meet at 9 am at the Smiley’s Fuel City truck stop in Raphine, VA (exit 205 on I-81). From there, we will drive to the trailhead. SAWS will provide PPE (hardhat, safety glasses and work gloves), tools and will teach proper safety and brushing techniques. No experience is necessary! Participants need to wear long pants, boots that cover the ankles, and bring a day pack with enough food and water for the day. Participation is limited to 10 people (group size limit in Wilderness) Sign up below to join us! If you have any questions, contact Eric Giebelstein ericgiebelstein@wildernessstewards.org.
