Assembly Location Change

Brothers, be advised, the Park Rangers have reviewed the status of current projects and decided to relocate our assembly area to the Akers Drive Entrance, Palisades Unit, so that we will be closer to the trail section that will be our focus for the day. We will be doing finish work on new trail; exciting times!!!
