Default St Helen area cleanup, April 25th

There will be an "Adopt a Forest" clean up at the St Helen Motorsports area and the surrounding area (Richfield township)

Date: Saturday, April 25th.

Time: registration from 8am-9am, We'll work until the 30 yard dumpster is full. Hopefully by about 4pm.

Meeting place: The township park in St Helen. 10415 Airport Rd, St Helen MI 48656.

What to Bring:
Work gloves
steel rakes
shovels
Rain gear
Pickup truck or Jeep/SUV with a utility trailer. Most known trash sites are in fairly open areas so you don't have to worry about scratches. Some sites may be accessible to 2 wheel drive vehicles, some will require 4 wheel drive.

Lunch will be provided.

A few other things I'm looking for help with:
I'd like to have coffee and doughnuts in the morning at registration. Anyone want to help provide that?
Heavy equipment. I have 1 skid steer lined up. I'd like to have a second "end loader" type machine if possible. Just keep in mind that we'll be using it for removing plies of old shingles dumped in the woods, volunteer at your own risk.
I'd like to get some fliers put up at some of the businesses around there to try to get some of the local people out to help. If anyone can help with that let me know. I put together a flier but it's on my computer at work so I'll try to get that posted tomorrow.

Note that I'm posting this on several sites so there may be multiple discussions going on about this.

Site admin: please move and/or sticky as you deem appropriate.

I am a maybe at this point. Like I posted over on GLFWDA, I will be up in the area but that is the weekend that I have my turkey permit. Depending on how the hunting goes, I may stop in.

Yea, a couple of hours for me too. But JoAnn and I will be driving the pick up there for the day to help out. Will be there in time for registration, work till the day is done, probably visit a little with friends in the area, and then head home.

I'll have to check the calender when I get home, but I'd like to make this. I'd be there in my pickup with a 4 year old helper.

I want to come, and am going to try to make it, but I don't know if I will be able to.

And to make matters worse, I'll be cleaning the Dunham Lk / St. Helen area with SoFO the following weekend.

I'll know more when it gets closer.

i will come to. I've never been, but it will be a good road trip for the little guy and I.

My car hauler has 4ft sides on it. Would that be useful? Or to hard to get around?

I'm planning on taking that Friday off work and heading up in the morning. That way I can scope out the worst sites and will know where to send people. If anyone wants to join me Friday let me know. If there a few I might try to get head start filling the dumpster then.

It would probably by useful, as long as you have a truck capable of pulling it loaded down sand roads. The worst dump sites tend to be fairly accessible. Think about what they used to dump the stuff in the first place.
