EMPIRE SAUK CHAPTER WORK DAY
Help is needed this winter with tree/brush removal & brush pile burning!
Be sure to wear appropriate clothing for the weather (dress in layers), and for burning brush piles (old clothes you do not mind getting holes in from fire brands). Do not wear synthetic fabrics, they ignite too easily. Wear sturdy footwear and work gloves. Bring drinking water. Chainsaw operators with their own equipment are welcome but must have safety chaps and headgear. Bring pruners or loppers, if you have them, otherwise they will be provided.
Winter work parties are dependent on weather & snow conditions; snow need/tolerance varies depending upon activity planned. Therefore, check with contact person the night before to confirm status of the event.
