Event Series Event Series: Work Party/Open House

Work Party/Open House

April 27 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

This spring  Cascade Rail Foundation will be having two combined work party/open house events at the South Cle Elum Rail Yard. They will be held from from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 and Saturday, May 18.  Join their volunteer work crew and help clean up the rail yard, substation, and depot.  RSVP HERE  if you plan to attend.

Show up dressed for dirty work and bring your favorite work gloves and any other appropriate personal protection equipment. Bring your own tools if you can. Hand tools for vegetation trimming and pruning would be useful. Also weed whackers, small chain saws, and power trimmers.

State Parks will be leading a power tool safety training class at 10 a.m. during the April 27 work party. This class is required to use power tools in the South Cle Elum Rail Yard.

If you can’t volunteer, Cascade Rail Foundation Board Members and other volunteers will be available to answer questions. If you are interested in volunteering as a depot host this summer, these events would be a great opportunity to learn more about it.
