Give back to your public lands! Join our Wilderness Rangers on Sunday, November 4th to keep wilderness wild and beautiful by removing unsightly graffiti in Devil’s Marbleyard.

Devil’s Marbleyard is located in James River Face Wilderness on the Belfast trail – a short but steep 1.5 mile trail.

The when: Sunday, November 4th, 10:00 am.

 

The how: We use a specialized chemical known as “elephant snot” and a bladder bag with a pump to remove the graffiti. We will provide all equipment such as personal protection equipment (hardhats, gloves, etc.) and tools to accomplish the goal – we will have a brief safety meeting before we begin and instruct all volunteers how to properly use the cleaning chemical and pump to remove the graffiti.

 

What to bring: Devil’s Marble yard is a scramble up steep rocks, we will move slowly and carefully, please sturdy closed toed shoes – preferably hiking boots. Bring lunch and weather appropriate attire.
