Requirements & Documents

All the necessary tools and work gloves are provided. All participants should be dressed for a day of outdoor work. Please wear covered shoes (hiking boots or tennis shoes) and long pants. Clothing should be made of natural fibers such as cotton or wool (no synthetic clothing) as workdays often have brushpile burns and stray embers can "burn" clothing. Please wear comfortable clothes that can get dirty and your own drinking water. Depending on the season, a hat, sunscreen, or insect repellant may be good items to bring to a workday. While this site is accessible by public transit, we can also work to arrange carpooling if desired.
