Black Forest Together in need of volunteers

Black Forest Together is in need of Team Lead volunteers for upcoming summer/fall work projects. The Team Leadís role is that of liaison between Black Forest residents and the volunteer teams helping with cleanup and/or mitigation.Duties include working with the resident/homeowner to understand the work to be done, oversight of the volunteer team and troubleshooting as needed. Physical requirements include being able to walk the terrain and be outdoors for four to six hours. Although physically helping the volunteers is appreciated, we also welcome people with physical limitations.Typical work projects include picking up and loading slash or burnt wood and creating a defensible space around the home by cutting small branches with a handsaw and raking and bagging pine needles. Projects for the fall and spring may include planting grass seed and seedlings. With the addition of the new chipper to our tool and equipment inventory, we would like to train some Team Leads on its operation. Team Leads also conduct safety briefings related to the project.To utilize volunteers and the short time remaining before cold weather arrives, your assistance with these projects will help the homeowners with restoration in the Black Forest community. If you would like to help in the Black Forest recovery efforts but the Team Lead is not for you, we are also in need of volunteers to help with the work teams. Both of these efforts are volunteer only. If interested, please contact Black Forest Together at 719-495-2445, email or come by the resource center at 11590 Black Forest Road, Suite 30, in the Forest Plaza Center Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
