The Catskill Conservation Corps will be coordinating volunteer efforts to assist the DEC operations crew, with the construction of the new Batavia Kill Lean-to. Volunteers will participate in the preparation of the site, and construction of the lean-to structure. Site preparations include clearing, leveling, and removing vegetation. Construction of the structure will require some heavy lifting, the use of ladders, and hand tools.
Volunteers will be provided safety equipment (hard hats, gloves, glasses), and tools( 3-4lb sledge hammers, impact drivers). To ensure to best fit and performance it is recommended that you bring personal protective equipment you are familiar with. We ask that all volunteers pack a lunch, snack and at least 2 qts or water. Sunscreen, and bug spray are optional, but can make the difference between a comfortable, or miserable day of service.
Volunteers will meet the crew leader at 9:00 at the end of Big Hollow Rd. each morning.
