Reminder: Friends Of Allegheny Wilderness Trail Stewardship Weekend April 27-28, Warren County

The Friends of Allegheny Wilderness will hold a Hickory Creek Wilderness Trail Stewardship weekend April 27-28 in the Allegheny National Forest in Warren County.
FAW has been the formal adopting organization of the 13-mile Hickory Creek Wilderness Trail since its inception 19 years ago, and has done an absolutely tremendous, magnificent job of keeping the trail clear of fallen woody debris and encroaching live vegetation for people walking the trail single-file on foot for almost two decades now.
If you could suddenly see all in one place the sheer volume of woody material FAW has removed from the trail over the years, it would blow your mind. There isn't a harder-working group of volunteers out there.
Come be part of the fun! We will meet at the Hickory Creek Wilderness trailhead on Saturday morning, spend the night in the wilderness, and hike out on Sunday.
Please contact FAW by sending email to: info@pawild.org for more information and/or to sign up.
Upcoming Events
-- May 11: The annual Allegheny Reservoir Clean-Up. As usual, FAW volunteers will be participating in this annual event, which is organized by the larger umbrella of the Allegheny River/Allegheny Reservoir Clean-up Committee. While we will likely mostly be heading across the state line to help clean up the shoreline in New York, we will be in very close proximity to the proposed Cornplanter Wilderness and proposed Tracy Ridge Wilderness in the Allegheny National Forest. Visit the Allegheny Reservoir Clean-Up webpage for more details and to sign-up.
-- July 27-28: Hickory Creek Wilderness trail stewardship. Same as the April Hickory Creek Wilderness project. Falling trees and limbs around the trail loop is a ongoing process — this is a wonderfully wild forest, so there will likely be new material on the trail that needs to be cleared. For more information or to volunteer, send email to: info@pawild.org.
Visit the Friends of Allegheny Wilderness website for more information on programs, initiatives and other upcoming events.
