- Wear long pants, long sleeves, gloves, sturdy shoes and a hat.
- You will receive a brief training session before you begin and sign a waiver.
- Because of the unique nature of the cemetery and the safety of our volunteers we will only use hand tools such as rakes, hand pruners and small tree saws. !!NO POWER TOOLS!!
- Don’t cut any plants marked with orange ribbon.
- Black cemeteries have typically used plants, objects & offerings to mark graves. This may be our only evidence of a grave. If it’s disturbed, it is lost forever.
- Don’t move any objects you find, they may mark a grave. Ask for a supervisor to evaluate what you find.
