Before a TM Day:

If possible, please check this page the day before the scheduled TM for notice of cancellation or postponement.

In the event of rain:

On TM Day, if it is already raining steadily at 8:00 am, the TM event is canceled for that day. If the rain is light or scattered, the TM Day is still on. Please dress appropriately.

Typical TM Day Agenda:

Volunteers meet in the designated parking lot at 9:00 am. We will divide into work parties and hike (or bike) into the work areas. We usually finish up no later than 1:00 pm. Tasks will include: clearing overgrowth, removing small blowdowns, litter collection (depends on turn-out).

Stuff to bring:

Signed Waivers (Mercer & JORBA once a year) work gloves, Bug spray, snacks/lunch, water. We will supply tools.

Additional/Postponed TM Days:

Additional TM Days will be scheduled as needed, or if weather causes a postponement of a scheduled TM Day. Check here for updates.

Trail Maintenance Volunteers:

TM volunteers are people who have performed trail maintenance at Mercer County Park (after having signed the waivers of liability). JORBA membership is strongly recommended if you wish to do TM at Mercer.
