    The second Fall 2011 Work Party is scheduled for the weekend of November 18, 19, & 20. Please RSVP. 

    The Chapter will provide tools and supplies, including meals. All you need do is bring gear for a simple bunkhouse sleep over, clothes you do not mind getting dirty, and a healthy attitude toward manual labor. Volunteers with special power tools, equipment, or pick-up trucks are requested to contact the work party leader. RSVP to jwstump@cox.net or 619-281-4688 so he can plan food, accommodations, and tasks. Work party leaders will help set up car pools; but participants must make and confirm the actual arrangements. 

    Unless there are special circumstances, work parties meet Saturday morning after breakfast at Foster Lodge on Mt. Laguna. You can stay overnight Friday and get your breakfast at no charge. Work begins at 8 AM on Saturday morning. The group usually works until mid-afternoon Saturday, and then breaks for a little recreation. Work resumes after breakfast on Sunday and continues until early afternoon. The work party breaks up in time for return to home at a reasonable hour. 

    As with all Sierra Club outdoor activities, volunteers must sign an Acknowlegement of Risk and Liability Waiver Form that will be provided on-site. in the case of minors, a parent/guardian must sign the form. Volunteer Vouchers will also be available on-site.
