Most tools and gloves provided, although loppers, handsaws and skilled folks with chainsaws are appreciated. Warming fires with s'mores and hot cocoa provided! Dress in layers for the weather and wear durable, enclosed shoes. Minors under 15 must be accompanied by an adult, and and everyone must sign a waiver.
