Mulkey Forest Conifer Hunt Work Party
December 11, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Greenbelt staff and fellow volunteers for a festive work party along Mulkey Ridge trail! Once we reach our target area – an oak woodland with young conifers that are growing up quick – we’ll pull out the handsaws and get to work. Removing these conifers now will ensure that oaks have plenty of room to grow for years to come.
You can expect 1-2 miles of hiking (both on and off-trail) and plenty of hand-sawing to warm up your arms and shoulders. There is poison oak in the area, which we will be identifying as a group in order to avoid it as much as possible during our work party.
Dress in layers – we’ll be having fun in the forest rain or shine, and it could be quite cool and wet. But don’t worry, you’ll warm up quickly and may be shedding your sweaters by the end!
