[multiple] Day of Service
Start Date: 9/21/2013Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 9/21/2013End Time: 12:00 PM
Event Description:
Come out to Bringle Lake Park for A&M-Texarkana's Day of Service.  The first 150 people get a t-shirt.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own tools. Tools can be lopping shears, hand clippers, bow saws, garden rakes, shovels, hoes, pickaxes, etc. In some areas, chain saws may be used by the group leaders. Much of the trail work will involve clearing brush, branches, small saplings, tall grass, and thorny vines.  Plus, removing small downed trees or logs. Volunteers need to wear protective clothing such as jeans, long sleeved shirts, boots or closed-toe shoes, and work gloves. Shorts and/or sandals are discouraged due to the nature of the work. Insect repellant is highly recommended.

 

Safety Tips:

Practice hand tool safety if using sharp implements.

Drink plenty of liquids. You can become dehydrated regardless of the weather.

Watch for bees, wasps, snakes, skunks, wild hogs, poison ivy, poison oak, and thorny vines.

If you see an animal or snake, do not bother it or try to touch it.  Move away from it.

When picking up trash, wear gloves. Do not pick up needles should you see any.
