Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Don’t forget: Dress for the weather, whatever that will be. Don’t forget sunblock. Bring your allergy medications and tell us about any allergies or medical conditions you have. Wear sturdy hiking shoes. Bring plenty of water for the day, a lunch and plenty of snacks to keep you going. Survey forms, your smartphone and weed identification guides will be good if you want to follow along and practice. A trowel or small digging tool and work gloves will be helpful in case we find things we can remove then and there if you have your own. Binoculars are good to have if you like.
