Event details

As Trust for Public Land (TPL) is nearing completion of the Chattahoochee Camp+Paddle Trail we need help building the primitive campsites and trails.

We will give you an overview of the 100-mile Chattahoochee RiverLands vision and provide information about the Camp+Paddle Trail. We will also provide instructions for the activities we will undertake including clearing and levelling campsites and trails with shovels, loppers, pick axes and garden rakes, and then hauling stones, logs, and mulch in wheelbarrows to each campsite and along the trails and then spreading the mulch. If there is time we may also assemble and install picnic tables, benches, and a fire ring.

TPL will provide all the tools and lead volunteers that will direct scouts and any other volunteers. Parking is available on-site.

What to bring:

  • Water
  • Dress according to the weather and the work being done; chance of encountering poison ivy, insects, arachnids, etc.
  • Close-toed shoes – boots recommended
  • Hat and other sun protection
  • Work gloves if you have them; TPL will provide disposable gloves

This event is rain or shine however, if there is severe weather the event will be rescheduled. Please check the weather before you head out. We will send an email by 7:00 am day of if the weather is too severe to work.

Minimum age of volunteers is 10.
