There are a lot of plants and trees that need fall maintenance. Cutting back bushes, decorative grass and trees is needed. Late September or October, 3-6 volunteers needed.
We have miles of trails that are frequented often by hikers and hunters throughout the year. These trails have been established well but every year they need some maintenance to keep them open. Light maintenance is needed for all trails every year that can be done with rakes, shovels or a weed eater. April – October volunteers are needed. Number of volunteers is unlimited.
Maintenance of the 3d archery course is needed. During the summer our archery course goes through trails in the woods. Those trails need work with light tools like rakes, shovels or a weed eater. Volunteers do not need experience in archery just the ability to walk trails with tools. May – September volunteers are needed. Number of volunteers is 2-4
Bees have arrived and we need volunteers that are interested in helping specifically with this project. More info about the bees can be found here

Work Day Lunches!
We offer lunches at all our workdays for workers. We need help preparing and cooking! If you are interested please reach out, we want to offer the best meals to all our great volunteers.
General Maintenance Items
We have an ever changing list of items that need tended to. Those include screen repair of our outdoor kitchen, wood shed cleanup, sweeping of dirt out of the garage or cleaning the equipment. We are also looking for more people to weedeat around the facility and general cleanup. These can all be done at anytime on your own. These small items all add up and make the facility look the best it can.
