Join Wild South staff and volunteers on Saturday, June 15 to volunteer for maintenance work on Borden Creek Trail 200 and the southern end of Trail 203. Volunteers who register may meet at Wild South office at 8:30 Saturday morning. 

“Be prepared to walk approximately five miles and be prepared for heat and the presence of ticks,” Wild South said. 

Wild South staff plans to prune back encroaching vegetation, remove trail blockages, clean out campfire, and pick up trash.  All necessary tools will be provided. 

All volunteers are encouraged to bring a backpack with work gloves, lunch, snacks, and plenty of drinking water. 

Staff members also recommend bringing an Epi-Pen if needed for insect sting allergies. 

“Wear comfortable clothing that's appropriate for weather as well, as protective against sharp tools and briars.” Wild South staff members recommend wearing long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes. 

Wild South staff also recommends wearing tick repellents such as, Permanmone or Sawyer permethrin products, which should be sprayed on clothing and left to dry for four hours before wearing. 

“Ticks are thriving and numerous this time of year.  It’s very important to protect yourself against the diseases they carry,” staff says. 

To register for the workday, email or call (256) 974-6166.

Volunteers may also meet at the trailhead the morning of the work day but must inform Wild South upon registration.  

The Wild South Office is located at 552 Lawrence Street in Moulton.
