About the event

Bodcau Clean Up

The Saturday before the Hunting and Fishing Day event at Bodcau, I would like to do some clean up work so that one of our best local resources puts on its best face!  And it's time to start getting our hiking legs in shape so we'll do a little of that too!

When:  Saturday Sept 17 8:00am (hiking) followed by 9:30 am (cleanup)

Where:  Meet at the sign-in pavillion at the top of the dam (road to the Tom Merrill Recreation Area/campground) at Bodcau Bayou. 

What: We will do some hiking on the trails and then split into teams and disperse to four areas – campground and bank, day use area and bank, primitive campground and boat launch and the Twin Bridges. If we have 2-4 people at each location, I expect we’ll complete the clean up in less than one hour.

Parking/amenities: Park at the sign in (iron ranger) at the top of the hill (on the road to the campground)

Duration:  about an hour or so of hiking followed by about an hour or so of cleanup.... if you just want to join for the clean up plan to arrive about 9:30 am.

What to bring:  Gloves, rakes, pickers. The COE will provide trash bags but sometimes I like to tote a bucket as I find it easier.

Leader/Contact person:  Tammy Jernigan 318-464-1752

If interested in lunch at my house afterwards, let me know so I can accumulate the right amount of vittles. I live less than 10 minutes from Bodcau.
