Volunteer

We have begun our work parties again in 2021.

Upcoming Work Parties

0o join us, please email as noted below. Most events start at 8:30 am and last until 1:30 pm.
Wear hiking or work boots- preferably the kind that protect your ankles. Long pants are also necessary, even in hot weather.

Bring work gloves, a lunch and plenty of drinking water.

 

We have all the tools and snacks, and we’ll provide whatever training may be necessary. Since we work as a group and need to account for everyone’s safety, we ask that you avoid the need to leave early or come late.

 

More details about what we’ll be working on, and where we’ll be meeting will be emailed to you a few days before this event. If a work party is marked as “WAIT LIST”, we have reached the limit for this work party, but sometimes our volunteers have a change of plans.

 

If you’d like to be on the wait list for this day, feel free to follow the usual signup process, and we will be in touch if a spot opens up at the last minute.


Thanks!

Saturday November 20, 2021

Sign up! With winter snows coming to the mountains Chinook Trail Association will be having work parties in Vancouver.
We will meet Saturday November 20th at about 8:30 and work from 9 to 1. This work party is subject to weather but some rain won’t stop us!
This spring we had a work party cutting blackberries on the Ellen Davis Trail. This summer someone, I’m guessing BPA, had all the blackberries cut down on the west side of that same portion of the Ellen Davis trail.
This presents an opportunity to grub out the blackberry crowns in that area and stop them from growing back which will reduce future maintenance. I also have extra daffodil bulbs that we can plant and provide a spring surprise to the trail users.
We have grubbing tools, shovels, and loppers.
You’ll need good boots and good gloves for the blackberries along with raingear and warm clothing. We will be parking near the worksite and we will be hauling the blackberry debris out to the main road for later pickup by the City of Vancouver. 
Email sjones@chinooktrails.org to signup and get the details.
