On March 8th, the Atlanta Chapter of AmeriCorps Alums will partner with the Kennesaw Mountain Trail Club.  We'll be helping out with one of the volunteer Trail Days.  Check-in is at the Old 41 Overflow parking lot. See http://www.kennesawmountaintrailclub.org/workday.php for directions.  Please check in prior to 8:30 am (we want to get a quick start as there is a hike to the work site). The Volunteer Permission Form is on the website.

The planned activity focuses on developing the trail tread for the "24 Gun Trail". Teams will work on trail grooming within the corridor. Loppers, McCloeds, Pulaskis, Matocks, Shovels and Rakes will be provided. Be sure to bring gloves (we do have used gloves available) and wear appropriate work clothing. This is trail breaking work and you'll be a part of building this historically significant addition to the park. 

Be the one to come join the fun!
