Crosscut Sawyer Training

April 13 @ 8:00 am - April 14 @ 5:00 pm

Crosscut Sawyer Training

April 13-14 at Seneca Rocks Discovery Center and in the field

Description: Last year, as part of the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy’s Dolly Sods Wilderness Stewards program, we formed a Crosscut Sawyer team, and new members are welcome! Sawyers clear trails and campsites of fallen trees, brush, and vegetation using traditional, non-power tools compatible with the wilderness. We hold scheduled projects through the spring and summer in Dolly Sods and other nearby wilderness areas. The full weekend training covers the planning and tactics, safety, tools, and techniques for bucking trees and includes a full day of practice in the field, leading to certification as an A or B Sawyer. Basic first aid and CPR are required, and training can be provided by the Forest Service if needed.

If you are not already a member of the Dolly Sods Wilderness Stewards, please sign-up by submitting this form.

For more information and to register for the training, please email dollysodsstewards@gmail.com

The Dolly Sods Wilderness Stewards program was formed in partnership with the Monongahela National Forest to allow for volunteer action to supplement the Forest Service’s wilderness management activities, engage in visitor education and support the long-term health of the wilderness.
