Come join us! No experience necessary. Restoration Workdays occur in dozens of sites around the county, some on weekdays & some on weekends. These are no-commitment - come to as many workdays as you can. Children 10 years & up are welcome with an adult (and waiver signed by legal guardian). Please be prompt; the group will often head off-trail and you may have a difficult time finding them. Dress for the weather. Closed-toe shoes are required & long pants are recommended all year-round. Bring work gloves.
