This CITO is going to be held in areas where "karast" features are common. Sheer drop offs are present. As well as hidden cracks in the earth. There is a risk of personal injury.
We will be volunteering to help the MKC. The Michigan Karst Conservancy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness and preservation of unique karst features in Michigan. They also allow geocaching on their properties.
This CITO will take place at Mystery Valley. This CITO is three mile north of the earlier CITO at the Stevens Twin Sinks and the Bruski Sink.
We will meet at the parking area for the Mystery Valley (posted waypoint) at 1:00pm. Some of the scheduled tasks will vary as available supplies may change the schedule.
Some personal items that you should bring are water, snacks, lunch, insect repellent, sun screen, hat, gloves and sturdy boots.
You will need to bring your own tools. Some suggestions would be a shovel, rake, hand pruner, pruning saw or lopper.
Some of the Mystery Valley tasks that we may work on are:
- Work on Invasive plant removal with Wayne Murphy..
- Leveling the maintenance trail.
If you have never been at the locations, now would be a good time to visit to see these wonderful Michigan karst features. There are several traditional and Earhcaches here.
