Plymouth Woods is a hidden gem of the Southern Tier. Celebrate its 15th anniversary by helping to rejuvenate nearly 2 miles of trail that winds through a mature oak-hickory forest. Your assistance is needed to refresh paint blazes, cut back invasive brush, and clean up the edges of a meadow that holds a magnificent collection of Allegheny mound-ant mounds.
All tools and work gloves will be provided. Please wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots and bring your own water and lunch. Additional refreshments will be provided.
