VTS Workday: McKay Community Forest

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Greetings, Trail Stewards! 

It’s time again for our monthly volunteer workday in the McKay Community Forest! We hope you can join us this weekend:

Saturday, May 4th  

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

For this workday, we’re aiming to finish rocking another significant section of the upper Redwood Acres loop. We hope you can make it, as now is a great time to help bring this trail to completion! Bring your appetites, we’ll have a hearty lunch prepared by noon, thanks to John & Jean!

📍Meet at Redwood Fields on Fern St. (off Walnut Drive) in Cutten, at the storage container adjacent to the parking lot at 9:00 AM to collect tools & supplies and touch base on workday guidelines before heading out on the trails.

🌦️ We work rain or shine – We’re expecting cloudy weather with a chance of rain in the afternoon, so it’d be good to bring a rain jacket just in case!

General Volunteering Guidelines:

  • 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 (.5 mi to 2 mi generally).
  • Volunteers are encouraged to arrive 5-10 mins early so that enough tools and food can be made available for all.
  • All new volunteers will be required to sign a one-time liability release form that will cover all subsequent workdays.
  • All tools, gloves, trail and safe working techniques training will be provided by Humboldt County and VTS.

Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Southwest Eureka as well as Boy Scouts Troop 27 for making our April workday both fun and productive! 👏



Thanks, everyone — see you on the trail! 🌲
