McKay C.F. “Delta Force” Workday

September 6 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join VTS for weekly workdays at the McKay Community Forest!

When: Every Tuesday & Wednesday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. 
(please aim to arrive by 9 a.m. so we can secure all tools and supplies before heading out into the forest — stay for as long as you’d like!)

Where: Meet at the storage container located at Redwood Fields on Fern St. (off of Walnut Drive) in Cutten

Why: You can build a lasting impact on our community by helping construct new trails that support a diverse range of recreational opportunities for all ages & abilities, learn new skills on trail-building and tools for development, and bridge new connections & friendships with other trail enthusiasts!

*FREE LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!*
Thanks to support from local businesses: Los Bagels, Ramone’s Bakery & Café,  Eureka Natural Foods, & Babe’s Pizza

  • ·    Volunteers can show up for one or all of the weekly workdays, and are encouraged to participate regularly.
  • ·    Volunteers are encouraged to arrive 15 mins. early so that enough tools and food can be made available to all.
  • ·    All interested volunteers will be required to sign a one-time liability release form that will cover all subsequent workdays.
  • ·    Volunteers should wear appropriate work clothing, boots and bring a small day pack for carrying food and water as the varying project locations will require hiking to access (generally 0.5 mi to 2 mi).
  • ·     All tools, gloves, trail and safe working techniques training will be provided by the county and VTS
