If you have them, please bring brush cutters, small chainsaws, handheld pruners and/or small loppers and herbicide daubers/small spray bottles. Herbicide will be provided.

Given that we’ll be working over the typical supper time, please bring something to eat and drink. Snacks and drinking water will be available.
