****Hard Stop by 10:30 AM**, in order for those who want to attend a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for part of the newest MST trailhead/trail- Friendship Trailhead- at 11:30.

Come join us!
There will be something for all ages.

** 8AM CHECK-IN **

Last minute attendees are welcome to attend; however, please try to RSVP so we can coordinate efficiently. All last minute notices will be sent thru the meetup portal (more reason to RSVP attending).

Bring any tools you may have, extra trash bags, water, gloves, bug repellent, sunscreen….and so on.
(definitely hydrate/bring water- humidity may be a factor)

***Please sign up here for this specific event location- this will allow us to anticipate the number of volunteers- and have enough team leads and tools.
