Join the Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club on Saturday, July 9 for one of their annual Lopperfest events!

Loppers (also known as trimmers) are a cutting tool that are often used for removing branches from trees and are the quintessential tool for removing overgrown vegetation from the sides of the Trail. This essential work, and so much more, is performed by volunteers and helps to keep the Appalachian Trail alive.

All are welcome to join this event. Enjoy the satisfaction of spending a day outdoors alongside experienced volunteers and seeing the positive impact you are making on the Trail right before your eyes.

Please be sure to wear long pants and sturdy boots. Bring plenty of water and snacks for the day, lunch, sunscreen, bug spray, a rain jacket and personal work gloves.
