Introduction to Trail Maintenance: Trail U 977
This workshop will provide participants with the skills necessary to properly clear, maintain and improve a hiking trail so it is easily passable for fellow hikers and the trail itself is harmonious with the environment. Through field work, students will learn assessment of trail conditions, clearing, trail marking, proper use of tools and how to report any trail problems they may come across on their segment of trail. Be prepared to spend a few hours on the trails around the area as part of the field training.
Make sure to wear your hiking boots; dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and trail work; pack plenty of water; and bring work gloves.
Refreshments will be served.
This event is free and open to the public. Online registeration has closed, but if you would like to attend please contact Heather Rolland at 518-628-4243 or email us at [email protected].
