Fall 2019 Work Parties

What you need to know:

  • When you work at Dutch Hill as a volunteer, you are considered part of the US Forest Service staff, so you have to abide by their safety regs.

  • You must wear long sleeves, long pants (no shorts) and sturdy shoes or boots (no sandals).

  • Everyone on the mountain must wear a hard hat and gloves.  We have extras to lend out if you don't have your own.

  • To operate a chain saw, you must have a US Forest Service certification.  Contact us if you are interested in getting certified.

  • Bring your own favorite hand tool or borrow one from our stash.  Brush cutters come in handy for some projects.  No special certification is needed to operate a brush cutter.

Dutch Hill work days:

  • Sunday, Sept 22

  • Saturday, Oct 5

  • Satuday, Nov 2

All Dutch Hill work days start at 9:00 and end by 3:00 pm.  Bring a lunch and water.

We will also be meeting almost every Tuesday afternoon to work on mini projects at Dutch Hill.  We'll meet at 4 pm in early fall, then switch to 3 pm when the days get shorter.  Contact us before coming out to be sure we've got a project going on the Tuesday you are interested in.
