Using Tools Safely: A New Video with Joel Barks
Building and maintaining trails is hard, sometimes dangerous work, especially for someone who doesn’t know a McCleod from a hatchet from a grubbing hoe.
To ensure that volunteers use these tools not just safely but effectively, SMGA will be creating a series of trail-building videos.
What is the purpose of each of the tools at the volunteer’s disposal? What’s the best way to wield them? To carry them? These are a few of the questions that SMGA/Trail Crew member Joel Barks addresses in the first video in the series, “Using Tools Safely.” Produced by member Larry Mock, this video can be found on SMGA’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7288uPrsZI
