About the Event
Our first Saturday volunteer day of the year will focus on cleaning up an abandoned dump site in the Preserve. A prior landowner in this area dumped a variety of garbage here including appliances, car parts, metal barrels, glass bottles, tires, and more. Be prepared for a workout as we haul these heavy items out of the woods! Due to the difficulty of the work, we'd prefer volunteers aged 16 and up.
Proper footwear (close-toed, treaded shoes) is required - we will be hiking on uneven ground off the trails. Wear long sleeves and pants. Bug spray, sunscreen, and a hat will help keep you comfortable. Please bring your own pair of protective work gloves and a bottle of water to stay hydrated. We will provide trash bags and grabbers for all volunteers.
Volunteer event hosted in partnership with the Bull Run Mountains Conservancy.
