A Call to Arms! – or maybe chainsaws, posthole diggers, pulaskis and McClouds. In this case just posthole diggers. We are going to be installing all new signage for the Aska Trail System, a total of about 13 signs. So bring posthole diggers if you can.
We are under the auspices of Forest Service and they require wearing helmets while performing trail work. A bike helmet is sufficient (we do have extra helmets). Also bring gloves, adequate shoes, bug spray, sunblock, snacks, water and medication for insect bites if you are allergic. Sawyers – bring required PPE.
