Andrew Fish, a trail crew leader from the US Forest Service, instructed the volunteer crew on hydrology, the basics of trail maintenance, and demonstrated the use of a cross-cut saw. He explained that the saws used by the Forest Service to remove downed trees in wilderness areas are often ninety-plus years old because they are no longer manufactured.
Eight of the volunteers from the weekend were from the Outward Bound California Service Bus, a six-week long community service trip. The Outward Bound instructors are travelling throughout California to serve local communities and volunteer with non-profits and service organizations. The group has gardened, helped with re-vegetation projects, assisted with homebuilding, and done trail work. The Sugar Pine Café generously provided breakfast to the volunteer trail crew.
