PAINT & PRUNE: That's what we'll be doing on the Jackson Red Ground section of the Florida Trail in Blackwater River State Forest. Come help Helen refurbish all the blazes and trim back foliage as needed on this 6 mile section of trail. If you can wield a paint brush or a lopper, you are qualified to help!

Helen will meet folks at the What-a- Burger in Milton between 8:15 - 8:30 and we will caravan to pick up equipment and supplies at the Munson Forestry Center. With enough volunteers, we will be able to have a crew starting at each end and working toward each other. Should be done by @ noon. Hope to see you there!

For more info or if you are considering bringing children please contact me - Helen [masked])
