Volunteers are asked to wear gloves and boots, and to bring along any safety equipment they have such as goggles, etc.
Those who have clippers should bring them and there will be sharpening on site.
Extra garbage bags would be appreciated for the litter clean up.
Drinking water will be provided and a BBQ will take place at 11:30 a.m. Coolers are available on site for those who bring their own meat or meal.
The Pubnico Point trail is a three-stage project spearheaded by Felton d’Entremont, who is a conservation and protection supervisor with Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
"We're going to need a lot of people to haul brush," he said.
Volunteers have been solidly behind the project, with some offering to build boardwalks and cut trees.
