April 7th Event – Nettle Ridge Drummer Fund Project Workday

Nettle Ridge Drummer Fund Project Workday

Loyalsock State Forest – Hillsgrove DCNR Station


Fire-Up Your Chainsaw and Create Grouse Habitat on State Forest!

Come Help Create Habitat at a Joint RGS Chapter Workday…
The Susquehanna River Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania Chapters will be holding a joint workday on Saturday, April 7, 2018. Most of the work will be the hand-felling and bucking of trees 4 – 10″ in diameter. If you’re comfortable with simply notching and back-cutting smaller diameter trees, you can help us fell! Most trees are easily pushed over to aid in the desired direction of fall. If your more comfortable cutting trees already on the ground, we need help bucking as well! There’s no obligation to perform any task your not comfortable doing.
Here are the Workday’s Details:
Who: Susquehanna River Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania RGS Chapters & PA DCNR

What (to bring):  Protective eyewear, hardhat, chainsaw chaps, chainsaw, gloves, and hearing protection.

Where: Meet at the Hillsgrove Ranger Station, the project/cut site is a mile up the road and can/will be driven to as well.
Why: Cutting of non-commercial trees to create grouse and woodcock habitat.
When: Saturday, April 7, 2018 – 8:30AM (meet at Hillsgrove Ranger Station)
Lunch will be provided. PLEASE RSVP if you plan on attending, this will greatly help us to ensure an organized, successful, and productive day making sure plenty of food and fluids are available.


We hope to see you there!
