Its Time For Your Volunteer Spirit to Bloom
PagosaTrails.org – July Trail Projects
Pagosa Springs, CO – Visit the Pagosa Area Trail Council website – PagosaTrails.org – for up-to-date information on volunteer projects.
The Fourth of July is just around the corner and a great way to celebrate the birth of our nation is to help maintain some of the trails bestowed to us as our public lands.
The Pagosa Area Trails Council (PATC) has scheduled a couple of volunteer work projects for which we could use your help. PATC functions as one of the coordinating organizations to assist with the care and maintenance of a few of the approximately 687 miles of trails that need maintenance in the Pagosa Ranger District.
Trail work is for nearly everyone. Most projects have an array of needs, from lopping to digging to building to sawing. There is a job for every volunteer – we promise.
Projects are low to moderate difficulty – early season is mostly moving limbs and logs. No experience is necessary – we will gladly introduce you to trail maintenance and proper use of tools. The hike/project distance is approximately three to six miles.
You Need to Know: We will carpool to the trailhead. Wear long pants and closed-toe shoes; a long-sleeved shirt is suggested. Dress for the weather. Bring work gloves, eye protection, lunch, snacks and water.
Contact: Please RSVP with Stacy Boone at 970.946.5001 (leave a message if she is in the field).
