We will meet at 9 a.m. in the parking lot at the “Y” where Hwy 89 splits off Hwy 70/89 going toward Greenville. The public is invited to participate! Wear long pants, long sleeved, bright colored shirts, and sturdy shoes! Bring sun screen and sun protection. Equipment for the clean-up will be provided!
Be aware that prior to the Dixie Fire, there was an abundance of poison oak along our stretch of the highway. With all of the roadside rehabilitation, there could be poison oak remnants scattered throughout the area. Hope to see you there! Call Faith Strailey at 530-283-2604 for more information
