We have scheduled another round of cleaning for Hawk Rock and the Appalachian Trail on Sunday, September 14, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m at the Duncannon Recycling Center near Little Boston Road. We need a lot of volunteers to carry 20 gallons of water one third of the way up the mountain (to clean a large rock there) and get another 20 gallons all of the way up to Hawk Rock near the top of the mountain.
We’re asking you to bring as many filled or empty water containers as possible. We need 1 gallon jugs, 2 liter bottles and 5 gallon buckets. People with backpacks can carry the 2 liter bottles, people without backpacks can carry 1 gallon jugs, and the 5 gallon buckets can be used to store water near the graffiti removal locations. Everyone is encouraged to bring water containers even if they can’t carry them up themselves. Anyone can help, it’s as easy or as challenging as you’d like to make it.
If a lot of people show up, we might be able to help with other tasks such as cleaning the parking areas, cleaning the litter below Hawk Rock and doing some light trail maintenance. Bring work gloves and hand pruners if you think this might appeal to you.
A special thanks goes out to all of the great people who are making Duncannon a better place to live, relax and have fun. Please leave a comment below to let us know you would like to help.
