Join the PNTA for a two-day sawyer training and certification event, in partnership with our friends at the Back Country Horsemen of Washington.
Volunteers will get hands-on practice with chainsaws and crosscut saws while clearing the Mill Pond trail system: Sullivan Creek 565, Mill Pond South 550, Mill Pond Flume 520, Flood Plain Loop 523.
Following group instruction, saw-certification is a one-on-one evaluation process that takes place between instructors and students. Volunteers are encouraged to assist PNTA crew leaders with trail maintenance while waiting for their turn for an evaluation.
The PNTA provides tools, personal protective equipment, and training. Just bring yourself, your daypack camp gear and supplies (if you overnight), and a thirst for a rewarding day on the trail!
