Volunteers needed to help clear, clean and prep trail #4 at Charlestown State Park.

about this mission:

Once a largely undeveloped portion of the huge (15,000-acre) Indiana Army Ammunition plant, Charlestown State Park is located in southern Indiana. The park is easily accessible, located 8 miles east of I-65, on State Road 62. With scenic vistas of the Fourteenmile Creek valley and the Ohio River, with elevation changes of over 200 feet, Charlestown has much to offer the visitor with its rugged hills and deep ravines. While hiking the rugged terrain you will see Devonian fossil outcrops and areas of karst sinkhole topography. Bird watchers will enjoy the 72 species of birds, including bluebirds, black vultures and an occasional bald eagle.

what to bring:

Volunteers should wear long pants, closed toe shoes and work gloves.

The park will also provide some tools, etc.

If you have your own cutting tools, rakes shovels and wheelbarrow feel free to bring them for your own use.

Wear your ServeDay shirt and let the attendent know you are part of Northside and here to serve that morning.
