Volunteers from the Catskill Conservation Corps and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference’s Catskills Trail Crew will be working to rehabilitate the Devil’s Acre Lean-to on Hunter Mountain on Saturday, June 13th and Sunday, June 14th, 2015.
The work on the lean-to will include the removal of the existing roof and the installation of a new roof. The existing asphalt roof is in poor condition and will be replaced with a cedar shingle roof.
Other work for volunteers will include bringing materials to the site from the summit of Hunter Mountain where they are being stored and bringing out waste materials.
The crew will be working on the lean-to both Saturday and Sunday. Volunteers can join the crew for both days or just a single day.
The public is welcome to join and you do not need to be a member of the Trail Conference or have prior experience with the Catskill Conservation Corps to get involved.
No experience is necessary, we will provide the tools and the training on site before we get started.
Please be ready to hike to the lean-to work area; make sure to wear your hiking boots; dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and our trail building activities; pack plenty of water to stay hydrated; bring work gloves; and bring a bag lunch.
For more information, please contact Heather Rolland the Catskill Conservation Corps Coordinator at 518-628-4243 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
