March 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Splish, splash you’ll be needing a bath after this volunteer workday at Ooms!

CLC is currently making way for the new boardwalk at Ooms. With building starting soon, CLC is installing a temporary silt fence in Sutherland Pond to control erosion during construction. Knowing that many hands make for light work, we are calling for help to tackle this muddy, tough job.

P.S. We’ll be buying everyone who helps out pizza, so be sure to RSVP in advance so we know how much to buy!

What’s involved: This work will involve digging a shallow trench around the footprint of the new boardwalk to partially bury the silt fence. Other roles will include using loppers to clear paths and heavy hammers to pound stakes in.

What to bring: Please be prepared to get wet and muddy! Appropriate clothing and footwear for this program will include waders, muck boots, and/or rain pants. Please also bring a water bottle, work gloves, sunscreen, and snacks. We will have waders for folks to borrow if needed!

What not to bring: Please, no dogs.
