This is a fmilay friendly event. We will partner with Palmeeto Pride and the Naitonal Forrest Service to do some trail clean up in the Francis Marion National Forrest. Trail clean up will likely involve pick up trash and removing debris from the trail, but it could include some other tasks as well. 

PLease RSVP on the Eventbrite link so I can give Palmetto Pride an accurate headcount. 

Volunteers should meet at the US Forest Service Office, 2967 Steed Creek Rd, Huger, SC. 

Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants, long-sleeve shirts and sturdy shoes. Gloves, bags and vests will be provided. Weather-appropriate outerwear is recommended. Lunch will be served to all volunteers and staff.
