Dufferin Forest Spring Clean up FDCF-April 20th

April 20th is the big DCF trail clean up day!

See below for message from Dufferin County. Mansfield Outdoor Centre will be hosting the day and lunch will be provided. We’ll be looking for folks to volunteer for specific duties on the day. If you have something you particularly wish to do please let me know as well if you have any equipment you wish to offer and bring (like a backpack leaf blower 🙂 ).  Our downed tree situation is pretty good at the moment so a large focus will be removing the small debris and top layer of loose leaves from the trail (we wish to leave a light layer of packed leaves behind) as well as other Forest and trail projects.

Please RSVP to TVG (CONTACT tab) by Sunday night so we can arrange lunch for you. If you have already RSVPed to the County then you do not need to do so again.

From DC Forest Manager Caroline…

Hello everyone,

Here are some details about our Friends of the Dufferin County Forest event planned for April 20, 2024, 10 am – 3 pm. This will be a wholly outdoor event at the Main Tract to do spring trail clearing and garbage/litter pick-up.

The Mansfield Outdoor Centre (937365 Airport Road at the bottom of the hill south of the Main Tract) has generously offered that we can use one of their buildings as a base and for lunch. When you enter the property drive to the end of the main driveway to the Main Lodge building.

Please bring a reusable water bottle and any favourite hand tools such as pruners as we will have limited numbers available. Anyone certified to do chainsawing, please bring your saw and safety equipment.

We will be providing lunch – in order to facilitate that, please:

Let me know if you have allergies to gluten and/or lactose and/or are vegetarian for lunch purposes.

If you have any questions, please reply with them.

Thank you,

Caroline Mach


County Forest Manager
