We’ll be actively using tools such as loppers, saws, rakes, and paint for blazing trails, as well as addressing the removal of invasive species. All participants are required to register in advance.

This year’s Skill Building event will take place at Pisgah Hill Preserve (South) in New Gloucester. Our focus will a section being rerouted of the 1.2-mile loop trail where it intersects with a drainage channel. We’ll be re-blazing the trail with paint instead of markers and addressing invasive glossy buckthorn and shrubby honeysuckle.

For your safety and comfort, please bring safety glasses, gloves, suitable work clothes, a hat, and insect repellent for ticks and mosquitoes. Kindly arrive 10 minutes early to ensure a prompt start.

You must feel healthy enough to hike on uneven surfaces, hike up a hill, and perform basic trail maintenance.

Participants must register prior to the training.
