Sierra Club sets cleanup at Coopers Rock

The West Virginia Sierra Club will lead an Adopt-a-Trail cleanup outing Saturday morning, at Coopers Rock State Forest.  Volunteers seeking community service are encouraged to participate.  Much of the work will involve pruning briars, cleaning out drainage ditches and general trail clearing along a 1.25-mile loop.  Work will include using shovels, rakes and pruners, and moving reasonably sized rocks.  Volunteers should wear sturdy boots, and carry work gloves, water and snacks.  Rain is in the forecast, so carry rain gear.  Adults and adolescents are invited.  Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or a legal guardian.  Volunteers will have to sign a standard Sierra Club liability waiver and a Division of Natural Resources Volunteer Work Program agreement.
Info, including time and place of registration: Ann Devine-King, 304-594-2636 or atdk2@aol.com.
