Pitch in on public lands day

Written by 

Celebrate National Public Lands Day on Saturday, Sept. 28 by volunteering at DuPont State Forest to help clear a section of trail on Hickory Mountain Loop.

The service project will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and focus on an off-road mountain bike route. The work is of moderate difficulty and the hike to the project location is less than half a mile. The number of volunteers is limited to 50 and participants must be at least 12 years old. All volunteers will receive an REI T-shirt, while sizes and supplies last. 

Workers are encouraged to bring water, snacks, work gloves, sun block, bug spray, tools, if possible, and wear closed-toe shoes. A light trailside breakfast and grilled lunch will be provided. Volunteers will meet at the Guion Farm access area before the workday begins.

Registration is required.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
