Just met with Mrs. Sherwin, Mrs. McGoldrick, and Mr. Heller about the project and asked for their input. Got some great ideas including "situpons" and makeshift walls for a compost pile.
Finally approved yesterday! Here is the letter sent to potential volunteers:
My Eagle Project has just been approved by the Mendham Borough Superintendent. On Saturday and Sunday, I will be at Hilltop Elementary School (12 Hilltop Road, Mendham) creating an "Outdoor Classroom" which will entail clearing a trail and several classroom areas.
Who: Anyone that would like to help (and needs service hours)
When: Saturday from 1pm to 6pm, Sunday from 8am to 4pm
Even if it is raining, we will still be doing the project. However, if there is lightning in Mendham, the project will be postponed until further notice (for that day). If the project is not finished this weekend, next Saturday and Sunday will be work days (times TBD)
Where: Hilltop Elementary School, 12 Hilltop Road, Mendham NJ
Wear: Suitable clothing for the weather and since we will be clearing brush, long pants and long-sleeves are encouraged. There may also be ticks, so take appropriate precautions.
Bring: Pruning shears, other cutting/trimming implements that are not electrically powered, work gloves
Yes, there will be snacks. And water. Please RSVP with whether or not you can come!
Thank you very much,
