Work Session - Trail maintenance in among our tallest trees


April 13, 2024    
9:00 am - 11:00 am


Trail maintenance in among our tallest trees. The Ranger Trail that begins at Halff Park winds among our tallest trees and through the most wild part of our Preserve. After a few steps into this lush forest, you won’t know there are busy streets nearby. This trail needs maintenance every spring to keep the trail clear and easy to find.

We break into teams and each team has a knowledgeable volunteer, so you know exactly what to do.

For last-minute information, especially if the weather is questionable, check our website or Facebook page for updates, including dates and locations which may change because of conditions. We don’t want anyone working in the forest or on the prairie if there is a chance of lightning strikes.

Safety Information:

  • BRING WATER and insect repellant.
  • Close-toed shoes are mandatory. Heavy work gloves, long pants, and protective eyewear are recommended for your protection from poison ivy and thorns.
  • If you have them, bring loppers and/or small tree saws. (No power tools.)
  • All participants and the parents of minors must sign our Liability Waiver.
  • Youth under 18 must be accompanied by an adult; no drop off/pick up of those under 18.
  • For Master Naturalists, this may count as Volunteer Hours on the Preservation Society for Spring Creek Forest project.
