Phoenix Platoon

Event overview

This project will bring together volunteers from six different VSO's: TMC, Team Rubicon, Wounded Warrior Project, Travis Manion Foundation, Team RWB and Valors Veterans Community AZ. We will be doing a variety of trail maintenance-related tasks including removing brush, trash, weeds and undergrowth and invasive plants/grasses; we may be trimming trees and possibly be painting over graffiti. NOTE: This project will be in and near the Salt River bottom with uneven terrain and associated hazards. Please no children under 13. We will meet at the listed address, which is a trailhead for the park and has restrooms. Look for blue TMC t-shirts and our banner. Water will be provided but you must bring a refillable water bottle. There is about a 1/4 mile trail walk to the project sites and we will be negotiating rough terrain (river rocks, mud, debris) at the project sites. Please dress in clothes and shoes that can get dirty/muddy. Close toed shoes a must! There will be shade as we will be working under and around the 7th Avenue bridge.
