Chainsaw Safety & Maintenance Training
This is a half day workshop using classroom and field instruction to teach you how to work safely with a chainsaw in the woods. Topics will include safety considerations, felling, bucking and routine maintenance. NOTE: This training is required for Land Stewards to operate chainsaws on SPNHF properties.
When: Friday October 16th, 12:30- 4:30 PM
Where: SPNHF Conservation Center (Concord) and Estes Forest (Concord). We may carpool to Estes for field practice in the afternoon.
What to bring: Please bring your own saw, fuel, oil, maintenance tools, and safety equipment (chaps, gloves, helmet, eye protection and ear protection). You may want to bring a lunch or snacks if you haven’t already eaten by 12:30! You can also attend this workshop without a saw, and learn by observing others use their saws.
Cost: $30 for non-members, $20 for SPNHF members, FREE for Land Stewards
