We’ll be going north from the trailhead to collect trash, flood debris, and tornado debris.

When – Saturday, May 7, 9am
Where – East Fork Trailhead
What to bring – boots (it may be muddy), gloves, long sleeves, bug spray, water. We’ll bring the cutting tools, and trash bags.

Instead of a workday on Saturday morning, we’ll be conducting a survey of trailhead/trail users at Brockdale on Saturday and Sunday. We’re doing this to get an idea of how many trail users there are, where they are coming from, and how they heard about us. We need TTPA volunteers to staff the survey station at Brockdale and conduct the survey as folks drive into the trailhead. We’ll have 3 shifts on Sunday, 9am-noon, noon-3pm, and 3pm-6pm and need volunteers for all three shifts. We already have volunteers for the Saturday shifts.

The survey will be short, should be just a quick 2 or 3 minutes to interview each driver for the information we’ll need. At the end of the survey, we’ll hand them a TTPA brochure and use the opportunity to promote membership in TTPA.

Please contact Duke Monson at 214-422-2929 if you can volunteer for one of the shifts. Leave a message with a call back # if he doesn’t answer immediately.
