Friends Of Allegheny Wilderness Holds Hickory Creek Wilderness Trail Stewardship Days May 15 & 16, Warren County

Volunteers are needed for the
Hickory Creek Wilderness Trail Stewardship Days on May 15 and 16 hosted by the Friends of Allegheny Wilderness in Warren County.

There is no charge to participate in this program, but volunteers should bring all of their own camping equipment, food and water, and come fully prepared for any weather conditions that we may encounter over the course of the weekend. 

Precautions will be necessary to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These include, but are not limited to:

-- The group size will be limited to no more than ten people.

-- Please wear a breathing mask to our meeting point at the Hickory Creek Wilderness trailhead on Friday afternoon.

-- We will be taking peoples’ temperature at the trailhead before heading out. If it is shown that you are running a temperature of over 100° F, you should not participate.

-- Please do not participate if you know you have COVID-19, have been experiencing symptoms indicative of COVID-19, or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

-- Social distancing throughout the course of the weekend will be needed.

-- If possible please bring your own tools so that we are not passing tools back and forth. If you have your own hard hat, please bring that too. Hard hats for those who do not have them will be provided after being sanitized.

-- Please bring your own food, water, and cooking stove so that we are not sharing such items back and forth over the course of the weekend.

-- If you have your own hand sanitizer and/or disinfecting wipes, please pack them.

No power tools such as chainsaws or weed-whackers, etc. will be used, so there is no specialized training needed in that regard.

Participants will meet on Saturday morning, May 15th at the Hickory Creek Wilderness trailhead.We will camp in the wilderness Saturday night, and then hike out on Sunday afternoon, May 16th.
