At the Campground we will begin with a Tailgate Safety Briefing for all participants. (Safety is our #1 Goal)  We will form into teams and disperse to begin work on the cleanup activities.  The Forest Service RecShed staff plan to participate in this project and will provide gas powered backpack leaf blowers and may provide powered brushing tools.  Arrangements may need to be made for Chainsaw support if our scouting trip finds any down trees and large limbs.

NOTE:  If we have dry weather forecast and if we can recruit large enough crew we will attempt Lena Creek Campground cleanup on the same day. (5 min between Lena Creek CG and Hamma Hamma CG)
