Default Forest watch program

Hello Folks I wanted to take a minute to tell you a little about the New Elbe Hills Forest Watch Program we are trying to get off the Ground.

I for one am going to get schedualed for the Training as soon as I can but we need you to help us and get on the boat.

Elbe Hills Forest Watch Recruitment
Job Description:
Come out to Elbe Hills with your club or group of friends. Camp, or run the trails, as ambassadors of the 4-Wheel Drive Community!
Participants will be given magnetic stickers for your vehicles and signs in the camp area to clearly identify them as members of the Elbe Hills Forest Watch. Forest Watch. Volunteers will be available to answer questions, offer assistance as equipped to provide, educate new wheelers in Elbe to the type of trail they are looking for, and encourage volunteer participation to keep the trails sustainable.
• Provide recreation site and trail information to users in the Elbe Hills
• Provide education and assistance to 4x4 enthusiasts new to our trails
• Monitor 4x4 trails storm damage
• Monitor 4x4 trails for problems requiring immediate attention
• Provide a positive presence and positive contacts
Required experience:
All you need is the desire to work to make Elbe Hills a safer and more sustainable recreation area. Training will be required so the information Forest Watch volunteers pass along is consistent. Each club or group must have a minimum of one person attending the one day training, who can train others members of their club and be available to participate on Forest Watch weekends when their club participates.
How it works:
Clubs will sign up for a day or a weekend. They will be required to have a minimum of four people, available as two groups of two. The club members will post a sign at the trailhead indicated Forest Watch is in effect and may opt to leave a team at the camp area to provide information, maps, etc... The others will be available to drive trails and roads helping wheelers that are already out. Forest Watch participants are expected to set a good example, be approachable, and be ears and eyes for the DNR. They will serve as volunteers, and as such will be considered employees of the Department as you all are at work parties.
This is a great opportunity to promote the sport and recruit new members. Be a part of the Elbe Forest Watch. For more information: contact Nancy Barker at 253-312-4301, or anyone participating in the Elbe Hills Focus Meetings
