For workdays please use boots or any hiking confortable shoes, long pants (this will help to avoid any cuts in construction or with brushes while visiting the remote areas), light gear, a sweater or two, rain jacket, light long sleeve shirts, and any other item you feel necessary. Please be conscious of cultural sensitivity of the area – I’m sure you know what we mean.
