This is our first official work day of 2019!!  The fencing project and restoration efforts along Manville road are continuing, so: 

Our Projects this coming week are to continue putting up fencing along Manville Road and restoration of damaged areas as needed (more fun horizontal and vertical mulching!).  

Bring water, a snack and lunch if you plan to eat at the site.  Wear clothing appropriate for the weather and the project. 

BLM will supply safety equipment, tools, gloves and water for refilling your jugs (bring your own favorite gloves and hand tools if you like).

Schedule for the day:
7:30am – carpool from Dove Mountain Park  
8:15am – meet with BLM and other volunteers at the Manville Road entrance to the Monument.
12:00 noon – wrap up at work site(s) NLT 1200 noon

With all the work planned for the Manville area we will not meet at the Marana Airport. Take Manville road west off Sandario to the IFNM entrance. Let me know if you would like to meet somewhere and follow me to the site. High clearance vehicles are needed to travel down Manville road, we will carpool as needed from the Monument entrance.

We are putting up fencing along the roadway which means pounding t-posts, running and installing barbed and smooth wire. We may need to clear vegetation and we will spread vegetation to mulch areas that need restoration.  The work site is relatively level and we will work close to our vehicles. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and the project. Don’t forget to bring a hat, sunscreen and water. Water will be available on site to refill your containers.

All volunteers need to complete and have a FY18 IFNM Restoration Volunteer Service Agreement Form on file. (Click here for the form.) If you would like to participate, please send your completed Volunteer Service Agreement to Robert Walter [email protected] before noon on Feb 12th, and state that you want to participate in the 13 Feb work day. Robert will get your form signed and let you know that you are good to go.If you plan to participate let me know at: [email protected] or 334-9193.
