Work Party

Friday, March 22nd, 9 am to 3 pm
Saturday, March 23rd, 9 am to 3 pm.
Work party activities:

  1. Find place in front/side of Foster Lodge for ~40 bricks with names on them and set in cement.
  2. Prep and paint cabin: Friday – scrape, sand, mask cabin. Saturday – paint cabin with paint spray gun.
  3. Firewood – cut up downed oak one minute walk uphill on trail from cabin, stack for future use.
  4. Add flowmeter on 2-inch PVC water supply pipe on hill across road from Mt. Laguna next to existing shutoff valve (reason – show USFS that piping does not leak)
RSVP’s are encouraged. Please RSVP to so we can plan food, accommodations, and tasks. Volunteers may attend all or any portion of the weekend event. You may camp on site.

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.

Unless there are special circumstance, work parties meet Friday morning after breakfast at Foster Lodge, on Mt. Laguna. The group usually works until mid-afternoon and then breaks for free time recreation. Work resumes after breakfast on Saturday morning and continues until early afternoon. Lunch (Noon) and Dinner (6 PM) is provided Friday and Saturday. Breakfast is provided Saturday and Sunday (8 to 9 AM). Committee Meetings are scheduled after 9 AM Sunday.

Transportation is an individual responsibility; ride sharing and car pools are encouraged; but participants must make actual arrangements.

As with all Sierra Club outings, volunteers must sign an Acknowledgement of Risk and Waiver of Liability Form ; in the case of minors, a parent/guardian must sign the form. A responsible adult, parent, or guardian must accompany any minor and supervise them during any Mt. Laguna visit.
