Tool trailer

Cawaco Tool Trailer

The Tool Trailer got a good bit of use in 2015! 849 volunteers used the trailer to clear over 17 miles of trails in places like Turkey Creek Nature Preserve, Red Mountain Park and Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve! Cawaco keeps the tool trailer maintained and available to volunteer groups. Charles Yeager at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve is contracted through Cawaco to maintain the tools and make it available to volunteer groups. For more information about using the tool trailer, contact Charles at the number on the Tool trailer flyerTool trailer
