Join students and teachers from the
Prospect Mountain High School Environmental Club, staff from The
Forest Society, and members of Belknap Range Conservation Coalition as
we partner with The Belknap Range Trail Tenders (BRATTs) for an
Earth Day clean-up and trail stewardship workday on Mt. Major!
We’ll focus on the State-owned and
managed Mt. Major State Forest. We’ll hike to the summit to remove trash
tossed or blown off the main trail and upper reaches of the Boulder
Loop and Brook Trail(s). Weather permitting, we have the opportunity
to assist members of the BRATTs crew moving stone for ongoing
construction of scree walls and cairns. If enough folks are
interested, we may be able to clean trash from the perimeter of the
State D.O.T. parking area upon returning to the bottom.
The event is a collaborative effort
of PMHS, The Forest Society, BRCC, BRATTs and in conjunction with the
State of NH, Department of Parks and Recreation Volunteers Office.
Plan to meet at the main parking area by 9:00 AM and depart for the summit by 9:30
Wear weather-appropriate hiking attire, sturdy boots, dress in
layers, and bring warm clothing as the summit is chilly. Bring water and
snacks. We’ll provide work gloves and trash bags.
