Join VOC and SMT for trail work this weekend – Sept 27 and 28

SMT will again join efforts with the Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) and the Forest Service to work on the new Cottonwood trail work on Saturday and Sunday September 27 & 28. VOC requests that volunteers pre-register ASAP so they can plan for tools, supplies, food, and camping.

Register here.

You do not have to sign up for both days, and we’ll gladly take only one day if that works better for you.

- Work is from 8AM to 4PM both days.
- Camping: Free camping Friday & Saturday nights.
- Meals provided: Saturday – breakfast, lunch, dinner. Sunday – breakfast, lunch.

Tools are provided, but you will need to bring work gloves, enough water for the day, work clothing to include long pants and sturdy shoes or boots, things you can get dirty in.

Details will be provided by email after registration. Meeting place each day will be at the intersection of CR 175 and FS 181 (take CR 175 approximately 7-8 miles up and east of Salida). For any questions, contact: [email protected]
