We will meet at the Scout House to debrief and give instructions. Donuts will be provided for breakfast upon arrival at the work location site. We would like for people to carpool as much as possible due to limited parking space at the work site.
Waiver forms will be provided and are required due to working on private property. Volunteers must bring some form of acceptable ID (driver’s license, school ID card, etc.). Scouts should bring school ID’s.
Pizza will be provided for lunch at 11:00 a.m. and drinks will be in coolers.
All volunteers must bring PPE (safety glasses, gloves, long-sleeve shirts, jeans, boots) and digging shovels. Be prepared! Bring a favorite snack, water, and apply sunscreen lotion in advance, or jacket if weather is less ideal (cold/wet).
We hope to have sufficient volunteers to break into 4 groups of Scouts, led by a delegated leader, which will coordinate with Jordan. If you have any questions, please contact Jordan at 832-670-5997 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
