Woodglen Lake Park is where we start. We have areas around Middleridge Park that need to be cleaned, too, so parents will need to remain to transport some participants to the other park after we distribute supplies. We can accommodate all ages, as the difficulty of the terrain varies from moderate to easy.

Wear clothes and shoes/boots that can get dirty. Bring something to drink. We have gloves to lend, but they are all adult size large. If you are bringing children, we recommend bringing gloves that fit them. We supply garbage bags, you supply the enthusiasm. Thank you!
