Introduction to Trail Maintenance

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. Bring work gloves and loppers, pruners, small saw if you have them.  This event is free and open to the public. People younger than 18 are welcome, in the company of their parents.
