It's almost time for Rockfest! For those of you unfamiliar with it, Rockfest is the biggest event of the year for the Mid Atlantic Climbers, and will be held April 27 at Rocks State Park in Jarrettsville, MD. Volunteers, including climbers, hikers, and other local outdoor enthusiasts, will meet at 8:30 for sign-in before hearing about the day's projects at 9:00 and deciding how they'd prefer to lend a hand. Last year projects included trail rerouting, invasive species removal, trash cleanup, and building a new playground entirely from natural and local materials. Work will run until 12:00, when lunch will be provided for volunteers before they put the finishing touches on their projects, reconvening at 2:00 for a raffle and presentations. After that, volunteers are free to enjoy the rest of their day at the park. Unlike previous years, this will be a one-day only event, so you can leave your tent at home. Just bring water, sturdy shoes, and of course climbing gear if you plan to stay around and check out the parks routes and bouldering in the company of new friends.
